The Lyrics

I found a copy on Rathskeller's floor;
I started pagin' and I wanted more.
Ho, ho! Germanic fun.

It's pretty witty; I've become a fan
I love "Der Spiegel," read it in the can.
Haha! Pure antic fun.

This mag's got gags, such as Germanic puns.
My favorite one: "Catch your Kuehlschrank,* it runs!"
Yuk, yuk! Sure's manic fun.

Some folks are wrong; they just don't understand.
They say, hoots are moot in Teutonic land. . .
Nix! Yuks: milk from schnozz, runnin' out.

Eating, I read "Der Spiegel," gag on bundt;
Crumbs come cascading from my frantic Mund.*
One sketch has Jung keen, "Freud's [arche]type is 'Schweinhund'!"
