Wie reizend bist du Montag Morgens immer

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie reizend bist du Montag Morgens immer,
Allein viel schöner noch den Dienstag drauf.
Mittwochs umfließt dich königlicher Schimmer,
Und Donnerstags gehst du als Stern mir auf.
Am Freitag schlägst du ganz mein Herz in Trümmer
Und baust es Samstag schöner wieder auf.
Am Sonntag dann, wenn wir im Putz dich sehn,
Bist du nun gar zum Närrischwerden schön.

How ravishing you are

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

How ravishing you always are on Monday morning,
And much more beautiful yet on the Tuesday following.
On Wednesday you are engulfed with a royal glow,
And Thursday you rise like a star for me.
On Friday you shatter my heart into fragments
And build it up again more beautifully on Saturday.
On Sunday then, when we see you in your finery,
You are beautiful enough to drive one mad.
