Finger Play Version:

Kommt ein Mann die Treppe rauf,
klopfet an,
ist Jemand zuhaus?

A man comes up the stairs,
(Crawl two fingers up the child's arm to the neck)
Knock, knock!
(Knock gently on the child's forehead)
(Gently pull and wiggle the child's ear lobe)
Is anybody home?
(Gently wiggle and pull the child's nose)
