When good King Arthur ruled his land

Language: English

When good King Arthur ruled his land
  He was a goodly king;
He stole three pecks of barley meal
  To make a bag-pudding.

A bag-pudding the king did make,
  And stuff'd it well with plums;
And in it put great lumps of fat,
  As big as my two thumbs.

The king and queen did eat thereof,
  And noblemen beside;
And what they could not eat that night,
  The queen next morning fried.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.

Der gute König Arthur

Language: German

Der König Arthur von Engelland,
der war ein guter Mann,
der stahl sich Eier, Mehl und Speck
und eine Kuchenpfann'.

Er machte sich ein Feuer an
und schlug die Ei'r in die Pfann',
und backte einen Kuchen dann
so schön man ihn backen kann.

Dann lud er sich Gesellschaft ein,
die hat gar toll gelärmt!
Und was von dem Kuchen übrig blieb,
ward Sonntags aufgewärmt.
