Maskenball im Gänsestall

This is another fantastic Comedian Harmonists number which Nina Kreft and I attempted to bring into our repertoire. Although we sang it often enough for our own pleasure it sadly proved to be too difficult and over-ambitious, just as In der Bar zum Krokodil did, for public performance. The song itself is a charming, wonderfully light-hearted 5-versed ditty on the participants of a masked ball in a goose stall and their goings on. Especially amusing I found the lines about a loving pair (Leopold and Klärchen) who vanish underneath a bench charmed by a nightingale's song and consequent effects of raised heart beats.
