?. So well Corinna likes the joy [ sung text checked 1 time]

Language: English


Go to the single-text view

So well Corinna likes the joy,
She vows she'll never more be coy;
She drinks eternal draughts of pleasure,
Eternal draughts will not suffice.
Ah, give me more, she cries,
'Tis all too little measure.
