Mit Lust tät ich ausreiten

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mit Lust tät ich ausreiten
durch einen grünen Wald,
Darin da hört ich singen,
drei Vögelein wohlgestalt.

So sein es nit drei Vögelein,
es sein drei Fräulein fein.
Soll mir das ein nit werden,
so gilt es das Leben mein.

Das erste heißet Ursulein,
Das andre Bärbelein
Das dritt hat keinen Namen,
Das soll des Jägers sein.

Er nahm sie bei den Händen,
Bei ihrer schneeweißen Hand,
Er führts des Walds ein Ende,
Da er ein Hüttlein fand.

Da lagens beieinander
bis in die dritte Stund'.
"Kehr' dich, schön's Lieb, herumb,
beut mir dein'n roten Mund!"
