Additional verses

Summ, summ, summ
Bienchen summ herum!
Such in Blumen, such in Blümchen
Dir ein Tröpfchen, dir ein Krümchen!
Summ, summ, summ
Bienchen summ herum!

Summ, summ, summ
Bienchen summ herum!
Kehre heim mit reicher Habe,
Bau uns manche volle Wabe!
Summ, summ, summ
Bienchen summ herum!

Translation

Buzz, buzz, buzz,
Bees buzz around!
Look in flowers, look in little flowers,
For you a droplet, for you a little crumb!
Buzz, buzz, buzz,
Bees buzz around!

Buzz, buzz, buzz,
Bees buzz around!
Go back home with riches
Build us many brimming honeycombs!
Buzz, buzz, buzz,
Bees buzz around!

Song by August Heinrich Hoffmann, aka Hoffmann von Fallersleben, 1798–1874, who wrote the German national anthem.
