Behandelt die Frauen mit Nachsicht!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Behandelt die Frauen mit Nachsicht!
Aus krummer Rippe ward sie erschaffen,
Gott konnte sie nicht ganz grade machen.
Willst du sie biegen, sie bricht;

Läßt du sie ruhig, sie wird noch krümmer;
Du guter Adam, was ist denn schlimmer? -
Behandelt die Frauen mit Nachsicht:
Es ist nicht gut, daß euch eine Rippe bricht.
