German.png German text

Gut Singer und ein Organist/
 gehören wol zusamen/
 zuvor auß wo man frölich ist/
 und trinckt in Gottes namen/
 on neid und haß/
 ein zimlichs glas/
 das macht die Claves greiffen,
 das macht die Claves greiffen/
 dann wie man spricht/
 wo wein gebricht/
 laut selten die Sackpfeifen.

 Ein furmann der fortkommen wil/
 muß schmiren seinen wagen/
 also ein Singer taugt nit vil/
 er wasch dann seinen kragen/
 mit guten wein/
 darumb schenck ein/
 den edlen safft von reben/
 ich hoff zu Gott/
 er werd zur not/
 auffs Jar ein bessern geben.

Good Singer and an organist/
 belong together/
 where you are happy/
 and trincks in God's name/
 without envy and hate/
 a timely glass/
 that makes take to the keys/
 As they say/
 where wine is broken /
 rarely the bagpipes sound.

 A furman who wil go forth/
 must grease his wagon/
 So a singer though not in exsess/
 must wash his collar /
 with good wine /
 so pour in
 the noble juice of grapes/
 I hope to God/
 there will be no famine
 and he will give a better year.
