Auf morgen ist Sankt Valentins Tag

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

Auf morgen ist Sankt Valentins Tag,
Wohl an der Zeit noch früh,
Und ich 'ne Maid am Fensterschlag
Will sein eur Valentin. 
Er war bereit, tät an sein Kleid,
Tät auf die Kammertür,
Ließ ein die Maid, die als 'ne Maid 
Ging nimmermehr herfür.

Tomorrow is St. Valentine’s Day

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Tomorrow is St. Valentine’s Day,
All in the early morning time,
And I, a maid at the window
Will be your Valentine. 
He was ready, put on his clothes,
Opened up the chamber door,
Let in the maid, who as a maid
Nevermore departed.
