A Pennsylvania Dutch Folk Song

"My Old Mother-in-Law" (karaoke)

"My Old Mother-in-Law" (sheet music)


Meini aldi Schwieggermudder

Waar en aldes Dunder.

Siwwe Yaahr waar sie im Himmel,

Kummt sie widder runder!

 

Waar sie net en verdammdes Weib,

Ass sie net im Himmel bleibt?

Un wir wollden keine Schwieggermammemaa,

Schwieggermammemaa, Schwieggermammemaa!

 

Un wir wollden keine Schwieggermammemaa,

Schwiegger-mamm-me-maa!

 

My old mother-in-law

Was the darndest old hen!

She was in heaven seven years,

And then she came down again!

 

Wasn't she dev'lish (my, oh, my!)

Not to stay up in the sky?

And we don't want any mother-in-law,

Mother-in-law, mother-in-law!

 

And we don't want any mother-in-law,

Mother-in-law!
