Spaghetti

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nur eins von tausend Englein
Stehe mir ausnahmsweise jetzt bei.
Denn die Spaghetti-Schlänglein
Entklitschen immer dicht vorm Mund.
Und das sieht aus wie Schweinerei
Und sticht die ganze Zunge wund.
Und ich bin doch hier feiner
Kaufleute Gast und schaufle schon
Zwei Stunden rum an der Portion
Und sie wird garnicht kleiner.

Spaghetti

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Just one of these little angels' horde
Is by me this moment ready.
Ah, spaghetti strands waving toward
One's mouth smack thickly steady.
And it seems rather a piggery
As one scorches raw one's tongue,
But here I be, in my priggery
Shoveling, as are the guests I'm among.
Across the hours a spaghetti serving
Is nothing less than I'm deserving.
