Wer kauft nun das Schlösslein

Language: German (Deutsch)

Zwei Rösslein am Wagen,
Drei Heller an Geld,
So will ich durchjagen
Die weit, weite Welt.

Nur flink, meine Rösslein,
Ich weiß mir ein Land,
Dort kauf ich ein Schlösslein,
Mein Geld in der Hand.

Die Peitsche macht Beine,
Fort geht es im Flug;
O weh, dass am Steine
Sich alles zerschlug!

Der Wagen, die Rösslein,
O Jammer und Graus!
Wer kauft nun das Schlösslein?
Mein Liedchen ist aus.
