Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: Orchestra Song - German Lyrics?
Subject: RE: Lyr Req/Add: Orchestra Song - German Lyrics?
My great-uncle used to conduct a chorus of all his guests whenever we had family reunions at his beautiful creekside property. We would do a "German Orchestra Song" that was a grownup version of the one John MacKenzie above refers to. No guitar. But it did have a Bassgeigen that said:
   Reifen Morgen! Reifen Morgen! Brrrrrr! Brrrrrr!

It also had changing rhythms: the intro lines w/Musikante and Schwabenland were in a strict 3/4 like a Landler. The instrument voices were in 2/4 and the instrument sounds like Reifen Morgen were in a swung dotted rhythm.

The first instrument I believe was a Geigen that said:
   Sinzi Linzi Sinzi Linzi Sinzi Linzi Strum Strum!
