Hänschen Klein?

Pronunciation: han|chin kline

Hänschen klein is a song that my grandfather would sing to my brother and me as children. It was a story told about a young boy who leaves to discover the world and returns as a man to his family.

Hänschen klein geht alleinIn die weite Welt hinein.Stock und Hut steht ihm gut,Er ist wohlgemut.Doch die Mutter weinet sehr,hat ja nun kein Hänschen mehr.Da besinnt sich das Kind,kehrt nach Haus’ geschwind.
