Die Sperlinge

Language: German (Deutsch)

Altes Haus mit deinen Löchern, 
Geiz'ger Bauer, nun ade! 
Sonne scheint, von allen Dächern 
Tröpfelt lustig schon der Schnee, 
Draußen auf dem Zaune munter 
Wetzen unsre Schnäbel wir, 
Durch die Hecken rauf und runter, 
In dem Baume vor der Tür 
Tummeln wir in hellen Haufen 
Uns mit großem Kriegsgeschrei, 
Um die Liebste uns zu raufen, 
Denn der Winter ist vorbei!
