O lieber Künstler sei ermahnt

Language: German (Deutsch)

O lieber Künstler sei ermahnt
Und übe Vorsicht jedenfalls!
Wer in gewissen Kähnen kahnt,
Dem steigt das Wasser bis zum Hals.
Und wenn ein dunkel trübes Licht
Verdächtig aus dem Nebel lugt,
Lustwandle auf der Lienau nicht,
Weil dort der lange Robert spukt!
Dein Säckel wird erobert
Vom langen Robert!

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.
