Spinnlied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sum sum, sum sum,
Rädchen, dreh dich rum!
Dreh das Fädlein freudig,
Mach es recht geschmeidig,
Mach mir's ja recht fein und fest,
Das es wird das allerbest,
Sum sum, sum sum,
Rädchen, dreh dich rum!

Sum sum, sum sum,
Rädchen, dreh dich rum!
Wenn wir fleißig spinnen,
Macht der Weber Linnen,
Macht es just so zart und fein
Wie das liebe Fädelein,
Sum sum, sum sum,
Rädchen, dreh dich rum!

Sum sum, sum sum,
Rädchen, dreh dich rum!
Ist das Garn gewoben,
Wird man uns hübsch loben.
In der Sonne, hell und heiß,
Macht man's Linnen blendend weiß,
Sum sum, sum sum,
Rädchen, dreh dich rum!

Sum sum, sum sum,
Rädchen, dreh dich rum!
Sollst doch nicht so schnurren,
Ich darf auch nicht murren,
Muss auch duldsam, still und rein,
Schweigend und bescheiden sein,
Sum sum, sum sum,
Rädchen, dreh dich rum!
