1. Kicke hi hi, ha ha ha
Ka ka kaney da da da
ist Han und Hennen Weckgeschrey
Wenn bricht hervor der Morgenstern
da lassen sie sich hören gern

2. Kicke hi hi…
… Liebgeschrey
Wenn Febo folgt dem Morgenstern
da hackt der Han das Hennlein gern

3. Kicke hi hi…
… Lustgeschrey
Je mehr der Han das Hennlein hackt
je mehr die Henn will seyn gezwackt

4. Kicke hi hi…
… Fruchtgeschrey
Hackt nun der Han das Hennlein wohl
So wird das Nest der Eyer voll

????, da da da
is the cock's and the hen's wake-up shout
when the morning star is rising
They like to be heard

2. … is the cock's and the hen's love shout
When Phoebus follows the morning star
The cock likes to pick the hen

3. … is the cock's and the hen's lust shout
the more cock picks the hen
the more the hen likes to be picked

4. … is the cock's and the hen's frucktuous shout
when the cock picks the hen well
the nest gets full of eggs
