Welcome, stranger, to my town
which would never let me down.
For I have learned to cherish all,
all good and bad of those who fall
within this town that loves us too
as old hanseatic towns will do.
These towns know, what they have meant
throughout the years in which they sent
the traders to far sees and shores
to sell their goods in foreign stores.
But also us, who’ve gained so much
by living in this town as such.
The wealth of all exotic wares
available from traders shares,
for us, your citizens to explore
in all the shops we so adore.
And stranger, when you see my town,
I know it will neither let you down.
