I think you mean: "This is different. I never heard 'Elf King' this way when I was young. You people should learn as I used to when I was young."

This is a most moving poem. I prefer the German version.Memories of KHS German class!

i believe this poem is a real true father protecting his son- from the dangers of unsrupluos men e'g the pedos of this world.
