Loss Es Schpucke
Die Schpuke kumme raus, Doch hen uns nix verhaust.
Sie fliege leicht do rum, Un gewwe gaar nix drum.
Dael Leit sin garn versschrecke, Un bleiwe unnich die Decke.
Annri Leit duhn yusht lache, Un saage ôloss es grache!ö
So Alle Grex un Zucht, Gebt Notions as es schpuckt,
Entwedders aus der Sinn, Odders Kopp mit nixli drin!
