Hupf, mein Mäderl (Ein junger Klavierspieler...)

I'm trying to find the lyrics and a music of a popular song amongst german soldiers. Not sure if it's military though the title should be Hüpf mein model or something similar
thanks

Hello,

after some headscratching I came to the conclusion that you must be looking for a song called 'Hupf mein Mädel'. The problem is that there are (according to Google results) at least two (perhaps even more) songs with said title that have completely different texts.

Best regards
Torsten

hello Torsten,
I think you're right! I came to this title by reading some interview from a veteran.
i searched on the net and i came up with 2 songs, but no music or lyrics

This waltz song is a cover of the popular US song "Yip-i-addy-i-ay" from 1908, composed by John H. Flynn and written by Will D. Cobb. The German lyrics were originally written by Karl Lindau (1908, as "Hupf, mein Mäderl") and then also by Alfred Schönfeld (1909, as "Hupf, mein Mädel"). The melody was very popular in Germany and even a military arrangement of the tune was made by Armee-Musikinspizient Prof. Oskar Hackenberger. Several parodies were made as well.
  • Hupf, mein Mäderl

    1. Ein junger Klavierspieler, Eduard Biermüller,
    blond, mit gescheiteltem Haar,
    der spielt täglich so prächtig, bald zart und bald mächtig,
    drin in der Amerikan Bar!

    Den Leoncavallo, den Lehar und Fall, o,
    den spielt er so gut wie der Strauß!
    Aber sang er ein Lied, das er selbst komponiert,
    dann erscholl kolossal Applaus.

    Hupf nur, Mäderl, geh, hupf recht hoch,
    hupf, Mäderl, recht hoch!
    Heute schlag ich der Welt ein Loch!
    Heute weiß ich, ich kann es noch!

    Hupf nur, Mäderl, geh, hupf recht hoch,
    hupf und schrei hurra!
    Heute leb ich und sterb ich, doch dauert's nicht ewig,
    drum hupf nur, Mäderl, hurra!

    2. 's gibt Arten von Musik, die sind schon ein Unglück,
    doch andre hört jedermann gern!
    Aber die der Klavierspieler spielte der Biermüller,
    könnte man nie genug hör'n!

    Ein Fräulein von Winzing, die wohnte in Grinzing.
    Komm, sagt sie zum künftigen Mann.
    Aber als sie den Pelz umhing und der sein Lied anfing,
    schrie er: Ich pfeif auf die Bahn!

    Hupf nur, Mäderl...

    3. Der junge Klavierspieler, Eduard Biermüller,
    war in die Schorschie verliebt,
    und es sagt die Kleine: Ich werde die Deine,
    doch eine Bedingung es gibt.

    Ich will deine Frau sein, doch du musst genau sein
    und während der Brautzeremonie
    gar zärtlich mir summen, ganz leise mir brummen
    am Traualtar die Melodie:

    Hupf nur, Mäderl...
Lyricist: Karl Lindau

According to many historians the unofficial song of 11./Pol.Rgt. Bozen was "Hupf, mein Mädel" and was sung many times but not in via rasella on 23rd March 1944. Is there a text of this song?

Hello,

I've merged your post with the topic dealing with the song in question. See the last post for more info.

Please credit the "many historians" who claimed that this song was popular in the 11th Company, Police Regiment Bozen.

What exactly did Katz and "many Italian historians" (which ones and whom were they quoting?) write? I'm looking for exact quotes and sources. Please be more specific. According to this Dutch article - http://huweschap.com/article/polizeiregiment-bozen (which is unfortunately unsourced) - the company commander, who liked the song, forced his men to sing it. And that makes it only (one of) the company commander's favourite song(s), not the company's unofficial song.

Cheers,
Ivan
