Learners are challenged to listen - several times over several days - and to remember, and later to predict, the exact endings they hear in the sequence of the lines of the song .
They could prepare cards with the endings on and hold them up when they predict they will hear them (eg as the teacher reads through the lines)
Example lines:
Der gute Mann - Ein guter Mann
Der gute Mann - Ein guter Mann

Schlag den guten Mann nicht!
Schlag einen guten Mann nicht...

Gib dem guten Mann einen Fisch
Gib einem Mann

This song includes - in sound and text - examples of the sequence of adjective endings through the declination of cases of nouns.
