Heimat

Unnedrunne uff de Kaad,
do, wo ich gebore waad,
liegt e Lond des aa en Rhein hat,
s'nennt sich Baade, ich nenns Heimat !

Geel - rot - geel - so sinn de Foabe
östlich von uns lebe d'Schwoabe.
D'Wackes wohne übberm Roihn
westlisch von uns, trinke Woin

Schwätze do ma Dialekt
Esse do ma Woascht mit Weck
Grummbier, Sparchl, Geelariewe,
Dampfnudl dun mer aa  liewe.

Grobach hoist  de kloine  Odd,
do geh' ich so schnell net fodd!
Brusels  Obber - Boamoischda
kam sogaa mol einscht von da!

Owedrowe d'Staffl nuff schnell
Steht die Michelsberg - Kapell.
Do glotzt ma in d'Londschaft weit,
wie  scho' d' Loit  in de Stoi- Zeit!

Ma sieht au Karlsruh, d'Residenz,
Bluume sieht mer  aa, im Lenz!
´n Kernkraftwerk kannsch aa noch seeh,
alder Schlabbe, die Heimat isch scheeh !

Spätzlesfresser, Wackes, Hesse,
Pälzer, Bayern, kannsch all vergesse!
noi, ich mach die all net madisch,
doch nur bei uns sinn d'Loit symbadisch!
