Ich möchte ziehn in die Welt hinaus

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich möchte ziehn in die Welt hinaus,
Hinaus in die weite Welt;
Wenn's nur so grün, so grün nicht wär,
Da draußen in Wald und Feld!

Ich möchte die grünen Blätter all
Pflücken von jedem Zweig,
Ich möchte die grünen Gräser all
Weinen ganz totenbleich.

Ach Grün, du böse Farbe du,
Was siehst mich immer an
So stolz, so keck, so schadenfroh,
Mich armen weißen Mann?

Ich möchte liegen vor ihrer Tür
[In]1 Sturm und Regen und Schnee.
Und singen ganz leise bei Tag und Nacht
Das eine Wörtchen: Ade!

Horch, wenn im Wald ein Jagdhorn [ruft]2,
Da klingt ihr Fensterlein!
Und schaut sie auch nach mir nicht aus,
Darf ich doch schauen hinein.

O binde von der Stirn dir ab
Das grüne, grüne Band;
Ade, ade! Und reiche mir
Zum Abschied deine Hand!
