The tyring days are over
we reach the hands
and merrily say good-bye
it just was all too nice!
Like in a fairy tale
time went over
we enjoyed merry and unannoyed
what your love gave to us.
With fresh strength and rested to the best
we're going home to our own nest
but let's not be false
we will miss many a thing.
The nice home so sweet and cuddly
the merry Strolch so cute
and in the evening a play of skat
which dad so adored!
Hanns and Walter may be loathed
who played the third man
and again good-bye
with you it just was all to nice!
Wilhelm and Trude into the Stammbuch!
