Es war ein alter König,
sein Herz war schwer, sein [Haupt]1 war grau;
der arme alte König,
er nahm eine junge Frau.

Es war ein [schöner]2 Page,
blond war sein Haupt, leicht war sein Sinn;
er trug die seid'ne Schleppe
der jungen Königin.

Kennst du das alte Liedchen?
Es klingt so süß, es klingt so trüb!
Sie mußten beide sterben,
sie hatten sich viel zu lieb.

Mädchen, Mädchen, diese wangen,
  Dies Erröthen, dieser Blick,
Ach, entflammt sie das Verlangen,
  Und verkünden sie mir Glück?

Darf ich kühn in's Aug' dir schauen?
  Darf ich voll und unbegrenzt
Diesem zarten Schwure trauen,
  Der in seinem Sterne glänzt?

Prüfe dich in tiefster Seele,
  Eh' dein Auge mich bethört,
Und dein Herz mir ganz verhehle,
  Wenn es mir nur halb gehört.
