(Music & Lyrics: Jenny & Martin Schaub)

Here’s a list of the things we should bring
And we must not forget anything
Not the knife, spoon and fork
The potatoes, the pork
Here’s a list of the things we should bring

There are twenty-four things on the list
I just pray that there’s nothing I’ve missed
Not the butter, the cheese
Nor the one sack of peas
There are twenty-four things on the list.

Here’s the ration that we recommend
See below the sum you’ll have to spend
Here’s a list on which you can depend

The list is as big as my fear
Twenty herrings, ten barrels of beer
And some good Swedish leather
for all kinds of weather
The list is as big as my fear

Here’s the ration that we recommend
See below the sum you’ll have to spend
Here’s a list on which you can depend

Here’s a list of the things we should bring
And we must not forget anything
Not the knife, spoon and fork
The potatoes, the pork
Not the pillow, the hat
Two plates and a mat
Not the eight loaves of rye
Nor the words of goodbye
Here’s a list of the things we should bring
