GUEST,Peter Lyr Req: Du Waggle Polka (Marv Herzog) (4) RE: Lyr Req: Du Waggle Polka (Marv Herzog) 25 Jun 16


This song has different titles and can be found in varios versions, eg. a Swiss Song (Yodel)
I bi en Farnsburg Jodler
trad. arr. Thuri Bürgler

I bi en Farnsburg-Jodler i has scho mängisch gseit
i heisse Fränzeli und bi e luschtige Cheib,
was mir am Härze lit, das isch e Pris Tubak,
ich rauch zum Zeitvertreib e Pris Tubak.


De Tubaksack de Tubaksack de Tubak ist mein Leben
de Tubaksack de Tubaksack de Tubak ist mein Freund.

Wenn wir im Wirtshaus sitzen und keiner etwas weiss
wenn wir beisammen sitzen wie ne g'stocheni Geiss
de nimmt e jedere Ma sis Pfyfli us em Sack
und raucht zum Zeitvertreib e Pris Tubak.

Und i ha es Schätzeli gliebelet sie hät mi nümme welle
will i um d'Schnore ume voller Tubak seig,
da ha ni zuenere gseit, fahr ab du dumme Cheib
viel lieber rauche ni e PrisTubak.

In all versions "waggle" or whatever the word is, derives from or has to do with tobacco

There is even a film with the title Der Duwak ist mein Leben
