Ein Hund kam in die Küche

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein Hund kam in die Küche
und stahl dem Koch ein Ei.
Da nahm der Koch den Löffel
und schlug den Hund zu Brei.

Da kamen die anderen Hunde
und gruben ihm ein Grab
Und setzen ihm ein'n Grabstein....
Auf dem geschrieben stand:

Ein Hund kam in die Küche
und stahl dem Koch ein Ei.

Translation(s): ENG IRI

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 about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
