A Pennsylvania Dutch Folk Song.
A Song of Childhood.


Joe Raetel, Joe Raetel, geh mit mir ins Graas,
Datt peife die Veggel, datt rabbelt der Haas,
Datt danst der Ox, datt brummt die Kuh—
Un der Essel schlackt noch die Drumm dezu!

Joe Rattle, Joe Rattle, come into the grass,
Where the birdies keep whistling as the rabbits hop past.
You’ll see the ox dancing; you’ll hear the cow moo,
While the mule beats the drum for me and for you.
