Tune of the Day: Wütend wälzt sich einst im Bette

Traditional German song

This is a song about Prince Frederick IV (1574–1610), who shortly after assuming control of the government of the Electorate of the Palatinate fell prey to alcoholism, leaving state matters largely to his chief minister. The melody to the song was composed in 1887 by Karl Friedrich Hering.

Madly in the bedclothes churning
Frederick, Prince of Palatine,
All good manners rudely spurning
Shouted out loud across the Rhine,
“How did I get home last night?
I must have been extremely tight!”
