Es steht ein' Lind' in jenem Tal

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es steht ein' Lind' in jenem Tal,
ach Gott, was tut sie da?
Sie will mir helfen trauren, trauren,
daß ich mein' Lieb' verloren hab',
daß ich mein' Lieb' verloren hab'.

Es sitzt ein Vöglein auf dem Zaun,
ach Gott, was tut es da?
Es will mir helfen klagen, klagen,
daß ich mein' Lieb' verloren hab',
daß ich mein' Lieb' verloren hab'.

Es quillt ein Brünnlein auf dem Plan,
ach Gott, was tut es da?
Es will mir helfen weinen, weinen,
daß ich mein' Lieb' verloren hab',
daß ich mein' Lieb' verloren hab'.

A lime tree stands in that valley

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

A lime tree stands in that valley,
oh God, what’s it doing there?
It will help me to mourn, to mourn,
that I, my love have lost,
that I, my love, have lost.

A little bird sits on the fence,
oh God, what’s it doing there?
It will help me to complain, to complain,
that I, my love have lost,
that I, my love have lost.

A little spring pours over the green,
oh God, what’s it doing there?
It will help me to weep, to weep,
that I, my love have lost,
that I, my love have lost.
