Mummy (Mamatschi)

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

das bettelte so wundersüss,
Mamatschi, schenke mir ein Pferdchen,
ein Pferdchen wäre mein Paradies.
Darauf bekam der kleine Mann
ein Schimmelpaar aus Marzipan,
die sieht er an, er weint und spricht:
