Here I found a perfect and beautiful representation: http://www.kinderlieder-texte.de/die-geige-sie-singet/.

Any verses about drums and bassoons have probably been added later and are not known generally. The Folk Process, however, joins the song with many other songs and rounds of (roughly) equal chord scheme, such as "Es tönen die Lieder" and "C-A-F-F-E-E", to form a giant quodlibet.

It should always be pointed out to learners that timpani (aka kettledrums, Ger. Pauken) and drums (Trommeln) are entirely different instruments!
