Swabian (Alemannic) – Dr kleine Prinz

littleprince   Translator: Manfred Mergel

Ach, kleiner Prinz! So nach on nach han e die kleins schwermütigs Leba verstanda. Wie lang hasch kei andera Freud ghabt wie bloß dr Sonne zuzumgucka, dui wo äll tag schee ontergeht! Des han e morgens am vierta Tag mitkriegt. Do hasch zu mr gsagt: I mag so arg die Sonnauntergäng.

Oh, little prince! Bit by bit I came to understand the secrets of your sad little life. For a long time you had found your only entertainment in the quiet pleasure of looking at the sunset. I learned that new detail on the morning of the fourth day, when you said to me: I am very fond of sunsets.
