Der fröhliche Mann

Language: German (Deutsch)

Heißa, ich bin der fröhliche Mann.
Hört, wie ich geigen und singen kann!
[Fidele, fidele]1, schum schum schum.
Dreht euch Alle herum rum rum!

Grüne Jupp' und ein grüner Hut
Steht dem fröhlichen Mann gar gut.
Fidele, fidele, schum schum schum.
Dreht euch Alle herum rum rum!

Bunte West' und ein Strauß daran
Paßt gar schön für den fröhlichen Mann.
Fidele, fidele, schum schum schum.
Dreht euch Alle herum rum rum!

Kommt, ihr Kinder, und faßt euch an!
Jeder tanze, wer tanzen kann!
Fidele, fidele, schum schum schum.
Dreht euch Alle herum rum rum!
