Brettl Lieder Brettl Songs


The King went for a walk,
The way a man goes for a walk,
Without his sceptre or his crown,
Just the ordinary fellow about town.

A strong gust of wind came down,
An ordinary gust of wind came down
Oblivious of who it was there walking,
Came down, assailed the King,

Whipped his hat right off his head,
And blew it off for miles ahead,
Never to be seen again!

So, you see!
There you have it!
Yes, that’s the word:
It is quite absurd!

A King cannot without his crown
Make his way around the town,
Mingling with simple men!
