You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 17, we are $5,700 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Nicht mehr barfuß sollst du traben

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nicht mehr barfuß sollst du traben,
Deutsche Freiheit, durch die Sümpfe,
Endlich kommst du auf die Strümpfe,
Und auch Stiefeln sollst du haben!

Auf dem Haupte sollst du tragen
Eine warme Pudelmütze,
Daß sie dir die Ohren schütze
In den kalten Wintertagen.

Du bekommst sogar zu essen -
Eine große Zukunft naht dir! -
Laß dich nur vom welschen Satyr
Nicht verlocken zu Exzessen!

Werde nur nicht dreist und dreister!
Setz nicht den Respekt beiseiten
Vor den hohen Obrigkeiten
Und dem Herren Bürgermeister!
