Die Raben haben Schnabelschnupfen
Und scheinen gar nicht wohl zu sein.
In Tücher mit und ohne Tupfen
Verpacken sie sich sorgsam ein.

Die Sache ist durchaus bedenklich,
Wie man hier leider, leider sieht.
Und auch die Kinder scheinen kränklich
Und von erkältetem Gemüt.

Oh, schont euch, hütet euch zu hupfen
Und bleibt im Neste weich gewiegt,
Dass ihr zum Rabenschnabelschnupfen
Nicht auch das Krallenrheuma kriegt!
