Gutzgauchs Fall

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Gutzgauch hat sich zu Tod gefall'n
Von einer hohen Weiden. 
Wer soll uns diesen Sommer lang
Die Zeit und Weil vertreiben?

Das soll sich tun Frau Nachtigall,
Die sitzt auf einem Zweige;
Sie singt und springt, ist freudenvoll
Wenn andre Vöglein schweigen.
