4 Der Tantenmörder.

Ich hab' meine Tante geschlachtet.
Meine Tante war alt, und schwach.

Ich hatte, bei ihr übernachtet.
Und grub in den KistenKasten nach
Da fand, ich goldene Haufen.
Fand auch an, Papieren garviel.

Und hörte die alte Tante schnaufen,
ohn' Mitleid und Zartgefühl.
Was nutzt es, dass sie Sich noch härme?
Nacht war es rings um Mich her...

Ich stiess ihr den Dolch in die Darme!
Die Tante schnaufte nicht mehr.

Das Geld war schwer zu tragen,
viel schwerer die Tante noch!
Ich fasste sie bebend am Kragen,
und stiess sie ins tiefe Kellerloch.
Ich hab' meine Tante geschlachtet!
Meine Tante war alt, und schwach.
Ihr aber, oh Richter.
Ihr trachtet meiner Bluhenden Jugend Jugend nach!

Would love to, but...
Would love to, but I can't sing good enough to do this myself. I will ask a good friend of mine though... I feel a project coming on to get all the orchestral songs getting sung live. That would be great!

Love to write...

Lush and bracing
Andre: You are achieving a very nice rounded, organic sound with GB4. I will try to sing this for you.

Richard, would be great if we could make pro sounding recordings out of these songs. Thanks!
