In Michael Ende’s Die Unendliche Geschichte (known in English as The Neverending Story), there’s a part where some characters are singing the following song :
“Als ich ein kleines Bueblein war,
juppheißa bei Regen und Wind …”
The characters then mention that it is an old song “by some guy named Schexpir, or something like that”.
I’m wondering what play the author was quoting. Does anyone recognize these lines from any Shakespeare play?
A rough translation would be
“When I was just a little boy,
Shout, ‘Hurrah!’ by rain and wind”
Anyone know this, or have a copy of an English translation of the book (which presumably uses the original)?
