Das arme Zickelein

Language: German (Deutsch)

Zickelein, was klagest du? meckerst du so sehr?
«Im dunkeln Stall mag ich nicht sein,
Ich suche Licht und Sonnenschein.
Darum, darum meckre ich, meckre meck meck meck.»

Zickelein, was klagest du? meckerst du so sehr?
«Am Bergesabhang sucht' ich mir
Mein Futter lieber doch als hier.
Darum, darum meckre ich, meckre meck meck meck.»

Zickelein, was klagest du? meckerst du so sehr?
«Hier ist es mir zu eng, zu klein:
Ich kann im Frei'n nur fröhlich sein.
Darum, darum meckre ich, meckre meck meck meck.»
