Hurre, hurre, hurre!
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Hurre, hurre, hurre!
Schnurre, Rädchen, schnurre!
Trille, Rädchen, lang und fein,
Trille fein ein Fädelein,
Mir zum Busenschleier.

Hurre, hurre, hurre!
Schnurre, Rädchen, schnurre!
Weber, webe zart und fein,
Webe fein das Schleierlein,
Mir zur Kirmeßfeier.

Hurre, hurre, hurre!
Schnurre, Rädchen, schnurre!
In und außen blank und rein,
Muß des Mädchens Busen sein,
Wohl deckt ihn der Schleier.

Hurre, hurre, hurre!
Schnurre, Rädchen, schnurre!
In und außen blank und rein,
Fleißig, fromm und sittsam sein,
Locket wackre Freier.
