(German version)

Darling, go home, your husband is ill.
Is he ill, let 'em give him a pill.
Oh come, my dear Franz,
just one more dance.
Then I'll go home to my poor old man
then I'll go home to my poor old man.

Darling, go home, your husband is worse.
Is he worse, well I am no nurse.
Oh come, my dear Franz,
just one more dance.
Then I'll go home to my poor old man
then I'll go home to my poor old man.

Darling, go home, your husband is dead.
Is he dead,
there's no more to be said.
Oh come, my dear Franz,
just one more dance.
Then I'll go home to my poor old man
then I'll go home to my poor old man.

Darling, go home, the will's to be read.
What's that you said?
I said, the will's to be read!
Oh no no, my dear Franz,
this is no time to dance.
I must go weep for my poor old man,
I must go weep for my poor old man.
