Clever Hans

00:16:02 :: 00:16:16

Clever Hans is not;
brings Gretel nothing;
takes all she gives him
and treats it poorly;
Mother cries “Foolish!"
and tries to school him;
“Don’t worry,” he says,
“better luck next time”;
but, he does not know
how to do better,
and wounds his sweetheart.
Dearies, be clever,
and do not excuse
he who cannot learn
to treat you kindly.
