You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Hallo, nun brennt mir wieder

Language: German (Deutsch)

Hallo, nun brennt mir wieder
Die Sonne auf den Hut,
Und jüngt mir alle Glieder
Und heizt mein träges Blut.

Ihr Burschen und ihr Frauen
Im Land Italia,
Ich werde euch wiederschauen,
Ich bin euch selig nah.

Ihr Bursche, nun will ich zechen
Mit euch den schwarzen Wein
Und wieder bei Singen und Stechen
Euch Kamerade sein.

Ihr Frauen von Rom und Venedig,
Nun fallet mir um den Hals,
Ich bin noch so jung und ledig
Und lustig wie ehemals!

Beyond St. Gotthard’s Pass

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Hello, now again the sun
Burns down upon my hat,
And rejuvenates all my limbs
And heats up my sluggish circulation.

You lads and you ladies
In the land of Italy,
I shall see you again,
I am blissfully close to you.

You lads, I now wish to imbibe
The dark wine with you
And in singing and competition
Be your comrade.

You ladies of Rome and Venice,
Now fall upon my neck,
I am still as young and single
And merry as ever!
