Es war mal eine Wanze

Language: German

Es war mal eine Wanze,
Die ging, die ging auf's Ganze.
Gab einen Duft, der nie verflog,
Und sog und sog.
Doch Musici,
Die packten sie
Und knackten sie.
Und als die Wanze starb und stank,
Ein Lobgesang zum Himmel drang.

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.
