German Song Lyrics

German Songs for Children

ABC, die Katze lief im Schnee
ABC, the Cat Ran in the Snow

This is a traditional children's song.

Melodie: Traditional, 1865
Text: Karl Simrock


A B C,
Die Katze lief im Schnee.
Und als sie wieder raus kam,
Da hat sie weiße Stiefel an.
O jemine!
Die Katze lief im Schnee.

A B C,
Die Katze lief zur Höh'!
Sie leckt ihr kaltes Pfötchen rein
Und putzt sich auch die Stiefelein
Und ging nicht mehr,
Ging nicht mehr in den Schnee

A B C,
The cat ran in the snow.
When she came out again,
She had white boots on.
Oh, my! Oh, my!
The cat ran in the snow.

A B C,
The cat ran up high.
She licked her cold little paws
And also cleaned her booties
And did not go any more
Did not go any more into the snow.

Melody: A B C, die Katze... (Midi from ingeb.org)
