So tanzen wir!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wer tanzen will, der steh' nicht still,
Darf sich nicht lang besinnen;
Immer dreist und wohlgemuth
Muß er das Ding beginnen.
La la la la.

Herum! herum! sieh dich nicht um!
Im Takte muß es gehen!
Muß sich Sonne, Mond und Stern
Doch auch im Takte drehen.
La la la la.

So tanzen wir, so tanzen wir
Ganz auf die rechte Weise,
Immer lustig nach dem Takt
Herum, herum im Kreise.
La la la la.
