Kleine Schöne, küsse mich!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Kleine Schöne, küsse mich!
Kleine Schöne, schämst du dich?
Küsse geben, Küsse nehmen,
Darf dich jetzt noch nicht beschämen.
[O wie schmackhaft küsset sie!
Kleiner Engel schon so früh!]1

Küsse mich [noch hundertmal]2!
Küss und merk der Küsse Zahl.
Ich will [dir]3, bei meinem Leben!
Alle zehnfach wiedergeben,
Wenn der Kuss kein Scherz mehr ist,
[Und du zehn Jahr älter bist.]4
