(From Leipe)
Translated by Ed Bernthal

As my father was a tailor,
He made fine trousers for me.
He sewed them quickly,
I tore them quickly,
He soon made me new trousers.

Now donít I please you dearest?
Look at my new trousers!
They are really nice trousers,
They are really beautiful trousers,
Oh, how well I can dance in them.

Oh, you my most dearest,
Pay for the first dance
Pay for this one
Pay for this one
I will pay for all the others.

No known music.
