Can Anyone Help with a German Accumulative Song?

Micki Friedmann Grant wrote:

Hey all – anyone know what this song is – I believe it’s a cumulative song, in German, and all I have is the nouns which accumulate! “schwarzer bar,” “blaues meer,” “bucherschrank,” “wasserfall,” “stolzer hahn,” “junger herr,” “eisenbahn,” “fledermaus,” “gummi ball.” I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to find this song again! Anybody know the title?

If anyone can help with any info about this song… the title, lyrics and/or translation… please let us know in the comments below.

Thanks in advance!

    I can definitely provide a translation for you, and I can research the origin of the song for you, too.
    Let me know :)

    The song you are asking about could be a version of “The Schnitzelbank Song.”
