1. Sitzt a schöns Vögerl aufm Dannabaum,
tut nix als singa und schrain;
was muss denn das für a Vögerl sain?
Das muss a Nachtigall sain!

2. Noan, mai Schatz, das is koan Nachtigall,
noan, mai Schatz, das darfst nit glaub'n;
koan Nachtigall schlägt auf oanam Dannabaum,
schlägt in a Haselnußstaud'n.
