Tea party

The Lord sent me forth Bear Whether the coffee'd already finished No, my child, tomorrow at seven, If he rubbed tomorrow at eight, it is made, Morning at nine, looking in, The coffee is ready to be already
Der Herr Bär schickt mich her Ob der Kaffee schon fertig wär Nein, mein kind, morgen um sieben, Wird er gerieben, morgen um acht, wird er gemacht, Morgen um neun, schau herein, Wird der Kaffee schon fertig sein
