Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Hojotoho! Hojotoho!
Heiaha! Heiaha! Hojotoho! Heiaha!
Dir rat' ich, Vater, rüste dich selbst;
harten Sturm sollst du bestehn.
Fricka naht, deine Frau,
im Wagen mit dem Widdergespann.
Hei! Wie die goldne Geißel sie schwingt!
Die armen Tiere ächzen vor Angst;
wild rasseln die Räder;
zornig fährt sie zum Zank!
In solchem Strauße streit' ich nicht gern,
lieb' ich auch mutiger Männer Schlacht!
Drum sieh, wie den Sturm du bestehst:
ich Lustige laß' dich im Stich!
Hojotoho! Hojotoho!
Heiaha! Heiaha!
Heiahaha!
