Heintje - Mamatschi (English translation)

English translation

Mummy

There was once a small boy
Who begged so treacly
Mummy, give me a little horse
A little horse would be my paradise
So the small boy got
A pair of gray horses made of marzipan
And he looks at them, cries and speaks:
"I did not want these kind of horses"
 
Mummy, give me a little horse
A little horse would be my paradise
Mummy, I did not want these kind of horses
 
Time passed, the boy wished
Nothing more but a horse from Santa Claus
Then Father Christmas visited him
And gave him what he wanted
On a table stand proudly
Four horses made of varnished wood
And he looks at them, cries and speaks:
"I did not want these kind of horses"
 
Mummy, give me a little horse
A little horse would be my paradise
Mummy, I did not want these kind of horses
 
And many years passed
The small boy became a man
Then one day before the gate
Stopped a glorious team of horses
In front of a colorful carriage stood
Four horses, richly decorated and beautiful
They took away his beloved mother
There he was reminded of his youth
 
Mummy, give me a little horse
A little horse would be my paradise
Mummy, threnodic horses I did not want
