Arrivederci Hans,
Das war der schцnste Tanz.
Das Licht geht aus I'm Lokal,
Nun kьЯ mich noch mal,
Bevor wir nach Hause geh? 'n.
Arrivederci Hans,
Das war der letzte Tanz.
Es wird bald wieder so sein,
VergiЯ mich nicht ganz,
Oh, arrivederci Hans.
Er kam aus der Ferne I'm Norden,
Und sie war zu Hause am Meer.
Sie waren Verliebte geworden,
Da fiel ihr der Abschied so schwer.
