Notes

This song is by Wilhem Hey (1789-1854)

*****

Here is an alternate beginning for the 2nd verse:

"Weißt du, wieviel Mücklein spielen
In der heißen Sonnenglut?
Wieviel Fischlein auch sich kühlen
In der hellen Wasserflut?"

English translation:

Do you know how many little flies play
In the blazing heat of the sun?
How many little fishes cool themselves
In the bright high tide?
