Weil nun wieder Frühling ist,
streu ich butterblumengelber Kasper
Lauter lilablaue Asternblüten, 
hei, ins helle Feld!

Lilablaue Astern, liebe Leute,
blühn im deutschen Vaterland bekanntlich 
bloß im Herbst.

[Aber]1 ich, ich butterblumengelber Kasper,
[weil nun wieder heller Frühling ist,
tausend dunkelblaue Asternblüten, 
hei, in alle Welt!
