Es war eine Mutter

Lyrics - German

(German folk song)

Es war eine Mutter
die hatte vier Kinder:
den Frühling, den Sommer,
den Herbst und den Winter.

Der Frühling bringt Blumen,
der Sommer den Klee,
der Herbst, der bringt Trauben
der Winter den Schnee.

Und wie sie sich schwingen
im Jahresreihn,
so tanzen und singen
wir fröhlich darein.

English Translation - There was a mother

There was a mother
she had four children:
the spring, the summer,
the fall and the winter.

The spring brings flowers,
The summer, the clover
Autumn brings the grapes,
The winter, the snow.

And how they swing
in the year,
So dancing and singing,
we are happy.
