The last two lines of each verse are repeated at the end of each verse.

Grün, grün, grün sind alle meine Kleider - German Children's Songs - Germany - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image

Notes

The third line can also be found as "Darum lieb ich alles, was grün ist" - which has the same meaning.

*****

Additional Verses:

Blau, blau, blau sind alle meine Kleider
Blau, blau, blau ist alles was ich hab'.
Darum mag ich alles, was so blau ist
Weil mein Schatz ein Matrose ist.

Bunt, bunt, bunt sind alle meine Kleider
Bunt, bunt, bunt ist alles was ich hab'.
Darum mag ich alles, was so bunt ist
Weil mein Schatz ein Maler ist.

Translation

My clothes are all blue, blue, blue,
Everything I have is all blue.
That's why I love everything blue,
Because my beloved is a sailor.

My clothes are all colorful, colorful, colorful,
Everything I have is all colorful.
That's why I love everything colorful,
Because my beloved is a painter.

Comments

The verses can be sung in any order though the song always starts with "grün" (green).
