    The first part is probably just some improvisation but the last two verses are a piece from Mozart’s opera “Die Zauberflöte” (”The magic flute”). I believe it is called “Ein Mädchen oder Weibchen” after its first line. It is a diddy sung by the character Papageno The text goes:
    Ein Mädchen oder Weibchen
    wünscht Papageno sich
    den so ein sampftes Täubchen
    währ Seligkeit für mich
    …währ Seligkeit für mich

    (A girly or a wifey – Papageno wished for himself – ’cause such a soft dovey – would be bliss for him )
