Marmotte

Language: Multiple Languages

Ich komme schon durch manches Land,
Avecque la marmotte,
Und immer was zu essen fand
Avecque la marmotte,
Avecque si, avecque la,
Avecque la marmotte.

Ich hab' gesehn gar manchen Herrn, 
Avecque la marmotte,
Der hätt die Jungfern gar zu gern,
Avecque la marmotte,
Avecque si, avecque la,
Avecque la marmotte.

Hab' auch gesehn die Jungfer schön,
Avecque la marmotte,
Die täte nach mir Kleinem sehn,
Avecque la marmotte,
Avecque si, avecque la,
Avecque la marmotte.

Nun laßt mich nicht so gehn, ihr Herrn,
Avecque la marmotte,
Die Burschen essen und trinken gern,
Avecque la marmotte,
Avecque si, avecque la,
Avecque la marmotte.

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 is supported financially 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.
