  Im Fliederbusch ein Vöglein saß
In der stillen, schönen Maiennacht,
Darunter ein Mägdlein im hohen Gras
In der stillen, schönen Maiennacht.
Sang Mägdlein, hielt das Vöglein Ruh',
Sang Vöglein, hört' das Mägdlein zu,
  Und weithin klang 
  Der Zwiegesang
Das mondbeglänzte Thal entlang.

  Was sang das Vöglein im Gezweig
Durch die stille, schöne Maiennacht?
Was sang doch wohl das Mägdlein [gleich]1
Durch die stille, schöne Maiennacht?
Von Frühlingssonne das Vögelein,
Von Liebeswonne das Mägdelein.
  Wie der Gesang 
  Zum Herzen [drang]2,
[Vergess']3 ich nimmer mein [Lebelang]4!
