Gutzgauchs Undank

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es wollt' ein' Jungfrau Sperber fangen,
Da flog ein Gutzgauch auf ihr Netze. 
Sie hob ihn auf, sie zog ihn auf,
Sie begann ihn auf ihre Hand zu setzen. 

Da sie ihn auferzogen hatte
Und also listig auferzogen:
Da flog der Gutzgauch (guck hin, guck her!)
Vor jenen Wald (guck hin, guck her!)
Da war die Jungfrau betrogen.
