O thin men of Haddam (German translation)

English
A A

O thin men of Haddam

O thin men of Haddam,
Why do you imagine golden birds?
Do you not see how the blackbird
Walks around the feet
Of the women about you?

Ach dürft’ge Männer aus Haddam

Ach dürft’ge Männer aus Haddam,
warum stellt ihr euch gold’ne Vögel vor?
Seht ihr nicht, wie die Amsel
um die Füße der Frauen hüpft,
die bei euch sind?
 
Thanks!
