ADAM ADAM
Johann von Besser Ernest A.Seemann
Verzeiht dem Adam, ihr Verächter,
Daß Even er gefolget hat.
Denn was er für die Mutter that,
das thun wir täglich für die Töchter.
Excuse old Adam, oh ye scoffers,
That he accepted Eva's offers.
What to the mother he did gaily,
We're doing for her daughters daily.
