"good go into the pot, bad go into the crop" "die guten ins Töpfchen, die schlechten ins Kröpfchen"

Grimm's Fairy Tales aka Brüder Grimm= "It's Grim Up North" (KLF) I know I keep referencing this. I don't need to go into why. Recount is a right, not a privilege. We deserve to know. Enough said.

"der Schuck ist zu klein,
die rechte Braut sitzt noch daheim"

"shoe's too tight/bride [groom]'s not right"

" rüttel dich und schüttel dich, wirf Gold und Silber über mich."

shake shake rain silver rain gold

"Shake quiver little tree rain gold silver over me"

my own words:

for this thing I gave him everything
for this thing I gave him everything
