A Pennsylvania Dutch Folk Song

"If My Old Woman Were a Potter's Wheel" (karaoke)

"If My Old Woman Were a Potter's Wheel" (sheet music)


Wann yeee mei Aldi en Schnitzelbank waer.

En Schnitzelbank waer, en Schnitzelbank waer,

Wann yeee mee Aldi en Schnitzelbank waer,

Doo deet ich draa schnitzle bis gaar nix meh waert!

 

Wann yeee mei Aldi en Schtrohgebund waer,

En Schtrohgebund waer, en Schtrohgebund waer,

Wenn yeee mei Aldi en Schtrohgebund waer,

So deet ich draa zoppe bis gaar nix meh waert!

 

If my old woman were a potter's wheel,

A potter's wheel, a potter's wheel,

If my old woman were a potter's wheel,

I'd potter away until I'd hear her squeal.

 

If my old woman were a bundle of hay,

A bundle of hay, a bundle of hay,

If my old woman were a bundle of hay,

I'd take her to market and sell her today!
