Tanzlied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Flöt und Hörner, Baß und Geigen, 
die geben hellen Klang ! 
Bursch' und Mädel schlingt den Reigen, 
stimmt die Kehlen zum Gesang.

Lustig, lustig, um die Linde, 
bei der Musikanten Ton; 
aber mit dem schönsten Kinde 
tanzt des Försters schmucker Sohn.

Sitzt am Tische dort alleine 
fröhliches Studentenblut, 
ist im ganzen Dorf wohl keine, 
die nicht solchem Burschen gut.

Weht sein braunes Haar im Winde, 
seine dunklen Augen lohn; 
dort ja mit dem schönsten Kinde 
tanzt des Försters schmucker Sohn.

Hätte deine holde Weise 
nie gefesselt Herz und Sinn !
Morgen geht's wohl auf die Reise, 
aber, ach ! Die Lust ist hin.

Wohl vergeht die Nacht geschwinde, 
fern im Osten glüht es schon, 
aber mit dem schönsten Kinde 
tanzt des Försters schmucker Sohn.

Dance song

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 Pipe and horns, bass and violins,
 they make such bright sound!
 Lads and girls wind the round dance,
 adding their voices to the tune.
 
 Merrily, merrily, about the linden,
 as the musicians play;
 but with the most beautiful girl
 dances the forester's handsome son.
 
 Sitting at the tables alone
 cheerful students,
 no one in the whole village,
 thinks ill of the lad.
 
 His brown hair blows in the wind,
 his dark eyes blaze;
 there with the most beautiful girl
 dances the forester's handsome son.
 
 Your fetching manner would have
 never bound heart and mind!
 Tomorrow, it will likely be gone,
 but, oh! The desire is there.
 
 The night passes quickly,
 off in the east dawn already glows,
 but with the most beautiful girl
 dances the forester's handsome son.
