Behold the duck (swan).
He does not cluck.
A cluck he lacks.
He quacks.
And when he dines or sups,
He bottoms ups.

Ah, I thought I know the style. :)
Usually germans, if they know his name at all, only know "Speak Low" and "Foolish Heart" and think he is a writer of rather awful sticky-sweet lovesongs... not that he was the american answer to Heinz Erhard:

Die Gans erwacht im grauen Forst
erstaunt in einem Adlerhorst.
Sie blickt sich um und denkt betroffen
"Mein lieber Schwan, war ich besoffen!"

Translation won't rhyme, also there is an issue with figure of speech, so I am afraid it is not so much fun in english....

A goose awakes in the gray forest
befuddled in an eagles nest
She looks around and thinks aghast:
"My dear swan, was I inebriated!"
