in the movie you have the scene when Oscar Schindler is seeking people to invest and to go into business with him. suddenly you have a song with two girls dancing with a english hat on. it is in german? two german officers are clapping and they say: come to the table girls, drink with us!

does anyone know this, they sing: links um die ecke um, recht um die ecke um uberall uber hauthauption (???)

i need this song !

hm, that´s a good question, i think they sing something like "holzauktion im grunewald", i hope you have ment this one song. but i also doesn´t know, how its name is. it´s a german "volkslied" in berlin in the early 20th century.

The song was written by Otto Teich and its title is "Die Holzauktion" (The Wood Auction). Sometimes it's also called "Im Grunewald ist Holzauktion".

The lyrics and a midi file can be found here:

I've been trying to get this song for ages, but it seems there's no way of getting it without buying it! I found a short preview on

I hope I was able to help you a bit. I'll keep on trying to find this song...

lol

ive found this thread since i was searching for a free mp3 version of "Die Holzauktion" as well. unfortunately, everything i found was a midi file and a short realmedia-preview on amazon (both were already mentioned in earlier postings).

as for the second song, this fa-la-hi alike thing - although i am austrian, i have no idea about what they might be singing, guess a true expert in german traditional folks songs is needed to answer this question.

Well, you don't need an expert to translate that - just someone who speaks german.
They are singing "falleri, fallera, falleri, fallera-ha-ha...", which doesn't have any meaning, but is just an expression of joy.

In other german songs you will find similar expressions like "trallala", "trallera", "tirallala", "fiderallala" and even "jucheirassa"...
It doesn't mean anything, but is just meant to sound funny, like laughter or cheer, and not as boring as "lalala".

It's just a folk song... it has no deep meaning. That is why they are all trashed and singing it and laughing. It's also been sung/recorded by American folk singers in English. It's about how this person love's the mountains, the birds, the rivers and the sky... It's like a childrens song. Then they make up a nonsense verse to rhyme that sounds fun. That's all.

With regard to "falleri fallera," someone in a previous thread mentioned the popular german folk song "Mein Vater War ein Wandersmann." This song also contains falleri fallera. Futhermore, the same tune actually exists in English, and we used to sing it on hikes/field trips, etc. in school. I seem to recall that it started, "I am a happy wanderer."

Yep, the Falleri thing is part of the song Mein Vater war ein Wandersmann.
You can actually hear everyone singing
"Wem Gott will rechte Gunst erweisen,
den schickt er in die weite Welt.
Dem will er sein Wunder erweisen,
in Berg und Tal und Strom und Feld

Falleri, fallera, fallera-ha-ha-ha-ha" and so on.

Mhmm... Just a second after posting my answer I recognized that maybe there IS a bit of a meaning in the words "falleri, fallera".

The german word "fällen" means "to fell". And the song deals with a wood auction... So maybe the author tried to stylize the word "fällen" and made "falleri" out of it.

But nevertheless the words don't have a real meaning and are just meant to sound funny.

I am in love with the song "die holzauktion". I have bought every cd I could which featured it, however, I am looking for the version in the film...the one performed by Rudi Scherfling with the Egon Kaiser orchestra. Does anyone have it or know where I can buy it? Any help is greatly appreciated. Michael

Schindler's List German song   Friday, July 25, 2003 (12:05 p.m.) 

Can anyone tell me the second German song in Schindler's List where everyone sings and everybody had their picture taken? Not "Im grunewals" but the second song...it goes far-le-de far-le-da...

Thanks

Jay,
It's been a long time since I've seen this film, but I believe your "fallarie, fallara song" is called "Mein Vater war ein Wandersmann". If memory serves me correctly, Schindler was singing this at the table with some girls with hats and they had their picture taken. "Mein Vater..." is a very popular song, so do a search, and I'm pretty sure all sorts of versions would come back. It's not on the SL soundtrack, and I doubt there is a SL version of it [i.e. Schindler/Liam Neeson singing it in a drunk voice, exaggerating the "... fallara - HA - HA - HA - HA..."]. Good luck.
Natalie
