I recall this from my youth.

Eins, zwei, Polizei
One, Two, Police
This traditional children's song and nursery rhyme has been recorded by at least two German groups: Mo-Do (1994) and S.W.A.T. (2004). (Note: We have not reviewed the CD song lyrics, which may or may not be suitable for young children.) Also see German Nursery Rhymes.

Melodie: Mo-Do
Text: Traditional

DEUTSCH

Eins, zwei, Polizei
drei, vier, Offizier
fünf, sechs, alte Hex'
sieben, acht, gute Nacht!
neun, zehn, auf Wiedersehen!
(Alt. verse:
   neun, zehn, schlafen geh'n.)        ENGLISH

One, two, police
Three, four, officer
five, six, old witch
seven, eight, good night!
nine, ten, good-bye!
(Alt. verse:
   nine, ten, off to bed.)

Any other variations?

Hi, Tenn Jim-
If you copy and post something from another source, it's a good idea to say where you got it from. I think your post comes from this Website:
http://german.about.com/library/blmus_kinderPolizei.htm




I wondered what the reference to Mo-Do was. Apparently, "Modo" is the Euro-pop group that made this recording in 1994 as a recitation with a musical background:
http://german.about.com/library/blmus_kinderPolizei.htm

The video gives these as the lyrics for the Modo recording:

Eins Zwei Polizei
Drei Vier Grenadier
Funf Sechs Alte Hex
Sieben Acht Gute Nacht

Ja Ja Ja Was ist los? Was ist das?
(repeat)

I didn't find the song in my modest collection of German songbooks. Are then any native German speakers here who grew up with this rhyme, or it is a Modo composition?

-Joe-
