La armonía en el matrimonio
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Oh dulce armonía,
Lo que quiera él, también lo querrá ella
Le gusta ir de copas, a ella también
Le gustan los juegos, a ella también
Le gusta contar sus monedas
y pretende ser un gran señor
Costumbres de ella, igualmente.
Oh dulce armonía!
