Der Abenteurer

Zu Mantua in Banden

Q, I thought you meant "Der Abenteurer" but just in case I've linked the other ones as well.

The lyrics of Der Abenteurer are completely innocent, but even humming or whistling or playing the tune is forbidden in Germany (and Austria) since 1945. The information on Frank's site about the opera origin of the tune is wrong.
