Husaren müssen reiten

Language: German (Deutsch)

Husaren müssen reiten
Überall durch Stadt und Land. 
Husaren müssen streiten
Mit dem Pallasch in der Hand. 
Wie könnten wir verzagen
Ohne [Geld]1 und ohne Brot. 
Husaren müssen jagen
Frohen [Mutes]2 in den Tod. 

Trompeten und Posaunen
Schmettern uns so [süß]3 und fein. 
Haubitzen und Kartaunen
Brummen lustig zwischendrein. 
Wie könnten wir verderben
Treu bei unsrem Feldgeschrei. 
Nur siegen oder sterben,
Kamerad, [es]4 bleibt dabei. 
[Trallerah vivallallerah tra rah]5
