I've a toller vot I shpend, but I've notting for to lend, For I never borrows nothing, don't you see, Yohn Schmidt, I've a pooty leetle frow, unt I've friends in plenty now; Unt lots of pooty children on my knee Yohn Schmidt. I've nothing to desire, as I sits besides mine fire, Unt I schmokes myself into a sleeping state, Yohn Schmidt; I'm so happy vot can pe, so you listen now to me, Unt I'll tell you vot I loves, unt vot I hates, Yohn Schmidt.
I likes de Lager Beer, ven it's goot, unt isn't dear, I can trink 'bout sixty glasses in a tay, Yohn Schmidt, But I hates de liquor law, such a ting I never saw Vot would take our Schnapps and Lager away, Yohn Schmidt, I liken a Deutchen song 'bout a hundred verses long, Mit a chorus for a toussant voices too, Yohn Schmidt; But I hates de schniffle psalm, vot isn't vort a-kreutzer, To sing it makes your face so long and plue, Yohn Schmidt.
I likes some Deutchen food, ya, I likes it pooty goot, Der shpeck unt sauer-kraut, unt salad schlau,Yohn Schmidt; But I hates de mulk unt schwill, unt de veal dey never kill, For it ties before dey've time to hit a knock, Yohn Schmidt. I likes de pooty flowers vot grows in garten bowers, De cabbage unt de radish unt de beet, Yohn Schmidt; But I hate de toads unt frogs, unt de susage made of togs, Unt everyting vot isn't goot to eat, Yohn Schmidt.
Now I've got a leetle shtore, unt I sits before mine toor, Unt I sells de Branty schnapps unt pretzel cake,Yohn Schmidt Unt I tink I pretty soon, have a Lager Beer saloon, Unt den vot plenty money I vill make, Yohn Schmidt. Unt ven enough I've got, I will puy a house unt lot, Uut a corner grocery I vill have besides, Yohn Schmidt; Den so happy I vill pe, mit my children on my knee, Mit my money unt my frow, but mit no pride, Yohn Schmidt.
