Da unten im Tale

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Bavarian (Boarisch)

Da unten im Tale
Läufts Wasser so trüb,
Und i kann dir net hehle,
I han di so lieb.

Sprichst allweil von Liebe,
Sprichst allweil von Treu, 
Und e bissele Falschheit
Ist wohl auch dabei.

Und wenn i dirs zehnmal sag,
Dass i di lieb,
Und du willst net verstehe,
Muss i halt weitergehn,

Für die Zeit, wo du g'liebt mi hast,
Dank i dir schön,
Und i wünsch, dass dirs anderswo
Besser mag gehn.
