Jehann, nu spann de Schimmels an!

Language: Plattdeutsch

Jehann, nu spann de Schimmels an!
Nu fohrt wi an de Brut!
Un hebbt wi nix as brune Per,
Jehann, so is't ok gut.

Un hebbt wi nix as swarte Per,
Jehann, so is't ok recht!
Un bün ik nich uns Weerth sin Sohn,
So bün'k sin jüngste Knecht!

Un hebbt wi gar keen Per un Wag',
So hebbt wi junge Been!
Un de so glückli is as ik,
Jehann, dat wüllt wi sehn.
