Hans Breitmann gife a barty;
    Dey had biano-blayin':
I felled in lofe mit a Merican frau,
    Her name was Madilda Yane.
She hat haar as prown ash a pretzel,
    Her eyes vas himmel-plue,
Und ven dey looket indo mine,
    Dey shplit mine heart in two.

Hans Breitmann gife a barty:
    I vent dere, you'll pe pound.
I valtzet mit Madilda Yane
    Und vent shpinnen round und round.
De pootiest Fraulein in de house,
    She vayed 'pout dwo hoondred pound,
Und efery dime she gife a shoomp
    She make de vindows sound.

Hans Breitmann gife a barty:
    I dells you it cost him dear.
Dey rolled in more ash sefen kecks
    Of foost-rate Lager Beer,
Und venefer dey knocks de shpicket in
    De Deutschers gifes a cheer.
I dinks dat so vine a barty
    Nefer coom to a het dis year.

Hans Breitmann gife a barty;
    Dere all vas Souse und Brouse;
Ven de sooper comed in, de gompany
    Did make demselfs to house.
Dey ate das Brot und Gensy broost,
    De Bratwurst und Braten fine,
Und vash der Abendessen down
    Mit four parrels of Neckarwein.

Hans Breitmann gife a barty.
    We all cot troonk ash bigs.
I poot mine mout to a parrel of bier,
    Und emptied it oop mit a schwigs.
Und denn I gissed Madilda Yane
    Und she shlog me on de kop,
Und de gompany fited mit daple-lecks
    Dill be coonshtable made oos shtop.

Hans Breitmann gife a barty--
    Where ish dat barty now!
Where ish de lofely golden cloud
    Dat float on de moundain's prow?
Where ish de himmelstrablende Stern--
    De shtar of de shpirit's light?
All goned afay mit de Lager Beer--
    Afay in de Ewigkeit!

                 Charles Godfrey Leland.
