Vor der Tür

Language: German (Deutsch)

Tritt auf den Riegel von der Tür,
Wie gern käm ich herein,
Um dich zu küssen.
"Ich laß dich nicht herein.
Schleich immer heim ganz sacht
Auf deinen Füssen."

Wohl kann ich schleichen sacht
Wie Mondenschein,
Steh nur auf, laß mich ein:
Das will ich von dir haben.
O Mägdlein, dein'n Knaben
Laß ein!
