POOR PAPA
THE WOODS OF GERMANY
(Sung by Hansel & Gretel)
(Sung by Hansel & Gretel)
Hansel:       He hunts to put food on the table
   He chops wood so to keep us warm.
   He patches the roof and gable
   to keep us dry when it does storm.

   Poor Papa, Gretel. Poor Papa, ooh.
   Here in a world of rainbows,
          Papa can see only blue.

Gretel:A tear he wiped away from his eye.    
  A tear that spoke so clear to me.
  It told of a man of goodness
  who can’t help but feel unhappy.

  Poor Papa, Hansel. Poor Papa, ooh.
  Here in a world of sunshine,
  Papa’s feeling oh so blue.

Hansel
Running through the woods of Germany
on a bright spring day.
Gretel come along now, don’t tarry;
shall we stop a while and play?
Jumping high, jumping low, watch me here I go
higher than the mountains.
Running through the woods of Germany,
what a lovely hideaway.

Gretel
Hansel stay right there now, wait for me.
Are you not yet sleepy?
I think we should rest and catch our breath,
breathe the fresh air deeply.
Sing a tune, sing a song, let’s sing all day long
of joy and peace and magic.
Running through the woods of Germany
alive within its beauty.
