Sung in German and English by Bob and Louise DeCormier.

lyrics by Leo Israel ; music by Rudi Goehr.


The goose —
The cuckoo and the donkey —
The happiest man —
The little man —
The neckar —
The cuckoo singing in the rain —
Lauterbach —
The pastor’s cow –Lizzie, Marie —
Hansel and Gretel —
The gosling —
Silly Liesl —
The sparrow —
We’re five little maidens —
The two boats.

    Oh, my gosh, I had this album when I was a kid! I can still sing “The Cuckoo and the Donkey” and “Silly Liesl” by heart, and it’s been at least 40 years since I last heard this album. I was googling for English lyrics to “The Pastor’s Cow” (I never could make out most of the words on that song) and found this page instead. Thank you!
