Wann yee-e mei Aldi en Schnitzelbank waer,
En Schnitzelbank waer, en Schnitzelbank waer,
Wann yee-e mei Aldi en Schnitzelbank waer,
Doo deet ich draa schnitzle bis gaar nix meh waert!

Wann yee-e mei Aldi en Schtrohgebund waer,
En Schtrohgebund waer, en Schtrohgebund waer,
Wann yee-e 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!
