Auf die Nacht in den Spinnstuben
Da singen die Mädchen,
Da lachen die Dorfbuben,
Wie flink [gehn die]1 Rädchen!
 
Spinnt jedes [am]2 Brautschatz,
Daß der Liebste sich freut.
Nicht lange, so gibt es
[Ein]3 Hochzeitsgeläut.
 
Kein Mensch, der mir gut ist,
Will nach mir fragen.
Wie bang mir zumut ist,
Wem soll ich's klagen?
 
Die Tränen rinnen
Mir übers Gesicht -
Wofür [ich soll]4 spinnen,
Ich weiß es nicht!

Im Lenz, im Lenz,
Wenn Veilchen blühn zuhauf,
Gib acht, gib acht,
Da wachen die Tränen auf.
 
Im Herbst, im Herbst
Fiel alles Laub vom Baum.
Ach, Lieb' und Glück
Vergangen wie [ein]1 Traum!
 
Gib acht, gib acht,
So ist der Dinge Lauf:
Blumen und Wunden
Brechen im Frühling auf.
