Der Stein im Garten der Müllerin

Language: German (Deutsch)

Guten Morgen, ihr Leute! ich grüß' euch schön,
Ihr habt wohl lange keinen Stein gesehen?
Sie machen große Augen und wundern sich sehr,
Als wollten sie fragen, was will denn der?
In Blumen will ich liegen, die Müllerin will ich sehn.
Wenn ihr euch genug verwundert, könnt' ihr nach Hause gehn.
