  • Description

    Item notes : Wachsmann's original recording no.: 54.18a. Item notes : From available documentation: a song that says "women are troublesome though sometimes helpful. The men buy them everyhting they need but the women use these things to befriend other men. This makes the husbands angry and they punish their wives, which causes them to say that men are troublesome. On the other hand women are helpful because they prepare food, etc."
