Gebirgsjäger (Wenn der Berge Schroffen glühen...)

Post by Alarm_Uboat » 25 Oct 2023 22:04

I came across this interesting song and this is what I managed to find out.

Text: Otto Schmidt
Musik: Hans Otto Borgmann

Two recordings were made.
(Kaiser website)

-Stabsmusikkorps der Ordnungspolizei (Grammophon) - all three stanzas are recorded.
-Musikkorps des Luftnachrichten-Regiments des Oberbefehlshabers der Luftwaffe (Kristall) - first and ? is recorded stanza.

In Prieberg's book I found the second stanza:
2. Hurtig aus den Betten springen
all die Mädels, jung und schön,
hören sie der Jäger Singen
und der Stiefel Marschgedröhn.

Hinterm Blumentopf
lacht manch blonder Kopf,
dann tönt hell und froh
unser Horrido!
