Tell me who invented the clocks
Language: German (German)
Available translation (s): CLOSELYFRE
Tell me who invented the clocks, the time department, minutes and hours? That was a freezing sad man. He sat in the winter night and pondered, And counted the little mouse's secret pecking And the woodworm's even pecking. Tell me who invented kissing That was a fiery happy mouth; He kissed and thought nothing of it. It was the beautiful month of May, the flowers jumped out of the ground, the sun laughed, the birds sang.
