Vom Federvieh

Language: German (Deutsch)

Haberkörnchen will ich streuen,
Dass sich all die Küchlein freuen;
Dann bedankt sich Morgens früh
Schön das Hähnchen kikeriki.

Gebt ein Körbchen mir voll Wicken,
Dass die Täubchen kommen picken,
Geh' ich Abends dann zur Ruh
Grüsst das Täubchen rukediku.

Gebt mir einen dicken Brocken,
Denn ich will die Enten locken.
Auf dem klaren Weiher da,
Entchen plätschert qua qua qua qua.

Kikeriki rukedi rukediku
Kikeriki rukedi rukediku
Qua qua qua qua qua qua qua qua qua qua qua qua qua qua
