“Which is the properest day to drink?
Saturday, Sunday, Monday?”
“Each is the properest day I think,
Why should I name but one day?”
“Tell me but yours, I’ll mention my day,
Let us but fix on some day.”
“Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday,
Saturday, Sunday, Monday.”

„Welcher Tag eignet sich am besten zum Trinken?
Samstag, Sonntag, Montag?“
„Jeder natürlich, warum sollte ich nur einen Tag nennen?“
„Sag mir den deinen, so sage ich dir meinen Tag, welcher ist es?
Lass uns nur einen Tag bestimmen.“
„Dienstag, Mittwoch, Donnerstag, Freitag,
Samstag, Sonntag, Montag.“
