Weg mit diesen, weg mit jenen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Weg mit diesen, weg mit jenen, 
Weg mit allen M├Ągdelein! 
Meines Herzens Freud' und Sehnen 
Fesselt mich an dich allein. 

Bin ich doch durch dich geworden
Willenlos wie ein Magnet,
Der sich immer, statt nach Norden, 
Nur nach deinem Herzen dreht.
