Lyrics

English Chorus Translation:
Baking baking Bienenstich (literally 'bee sting')
My Bienenstich, I love you
Mr. Klaber made it for me
Baking baking bienenstich
Every year at this time
Franz starts to bake ---
Happy people on the list
Get to eat a Bienenstich


Lyrics:
Backe Backe Bienenstich
Mein Bienenstich, ich liebe dich
Herr Klaber hat’s gemacht für mich
Backe Backe Bienenstich

Jedes Jahr um diese Zeit
Franz fängt an zu backe —-
Glücklichen leute auf der Liste
Essen einen Bienenstich

Almost a hundred years back when
In the village Hoh-en-saaach-sen
The family had a bak-er-y
And all the child-ren worked for free

E-liz-a-beth would learn the trade
And remember how she made
Delicious pastries, breads so thick
And she learned to make the bien-en-stich.

She dreamed she’d have a different life
And fate would make her Franz’s wife
He had a band; the one heard here
Something they would hold so dear

She and Franz had children three
And she talked about the bakery
Little Franz would one day share
Her love of pastries to prepare

Backe Backe Bienenstich
Mein Bienenstich, ich liebe dich
Herr Klaber hat’s gemacht für mich
Backe Backe Bienenstich

Jedes Jahr um diese Zeit
Franz fängt an zu backe —-
Glücklichen leute auf der Liste
Essen einen Bienenstich

Instrumental

Start with yeast and let it rise
Make the dough and be precise
flour, sugar, almonds, eggs
In the oven ‘til you have a cake

The best part is yet to come
Whip butter cream oh yum yum yum
Slice it horizontally
A pound of butter in between

Cinnamon and almonds all crushed up
Then powdered sugar on the top
The bee sting pattern made so quick
Gives the name to Bienenstich

I hope the list will have my name
‘Cause Christmas wouldn’t be the same
With a tiny present for my tree
With love from Znarfie’s bakery.

Backe Backe Bienenstich
Mein Bienenstich,ich liebe dich
Herr Klaber (mein opa) hat’s gemacht für mich
Backe Backe Bienenstich

Jedes Jahr um diese Zeit
Franz fängt an zu backe —-
Glücklichen leute auf der Liste
Essen einen Bienenstich
