Womit soll ich's denn aber zustopfen, lieber Heinrich, lieber Heinrich Mit Stroh, liebe Liese, liebe Liese, mit Stroh! Wenn's Stroh aber nu zu lang ist... Hack's ab... Womit soll ich's denn abhacken... Mit'm Beil... Wenn's Beil aber nu zu stumpf ist.. Mach's scharf... Womit soll ich's aber scharf machen... Mit'm Stein... Wenn der Stein aber nu zu trocken ist... Mach's nass... Womit soll ich's aber nass machen... Mit Wasser... Womit soll ich aber Wasser holen Mit'm Pott.... Aber wenn der Pott aber nu ein Loch hat...... But if the pot has a hole in it dear Henry, dear Henry Plug it dear Lisa, dear Lisa plug it But what should I plug it with dear Henry dear Henry With straw dear Lisa, dear Lisa with straw But if the straw is too long cut it... But what should I cut it with with an axe... But if the axe is too blunt sharpen it.... What should I sharpen it with with a stone... If the stone is too dry make it wet What should I make it wet with with water... What should I fetch water with With the pot.... But if the pot has a hole in it.....
