Backe, backe Kuchen – the German Version of Pat-a-Cake

Video

Fast perfekte Aufführung des Klassikers “Backe, backe Kuchen”; inklusive live backen eines Kartenspiels und musikalischer Zugabe, obwohl der kleine Mann schon ziemlich müde ist.
Für alle, die das Lied schon länger nicht mehr gehört haben, hier der Text als Erinnerung:

Backe, backe Kuchen,
Der Bäcker hat gerufen.
Wer will guten Kuchen backen,
der muss haben sieben Sachen,
Eier und Schmalz,
Zucker und Salz,
Milch und Mehl,
Safran macht den Kuchen gehl!
Schieb, schieb in’n Ofen ’nein.

This is kind of the the German version of “Pat-a-cake” although the lyrics diverge more than little (see the German lyrics above, the English ones below). During my 2-year brilliantly performed the nursery rhyme, he “bakes” a deck of cards and afterwards, he gives a great encore.

Bake, bake the cake,
The baker a-hollers.
Who wants to bake good cakes,
must have seven things:
Eggs and lard,
Sugar and salt,
Milk and flour,
Saffron makes the cakes yellow!
Shove, shove in the ove.

Most of the translation was taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backe,_backe_Kuchen
