Erlaube mir, feins Mädchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Erlaube mir, feins Mädchen,
In den Garten zu gehn,
Daß ich dort mag schauen,
Wie die Rosen so schön.
Erlaube sie zu brechen,
Es ist die höchste Zeit;
Ihre Schönheit, ihr Jugend 
Hat mir mein Herz erfreut.

O Mädchen, o Mädchen,
Du einsames Kind,
Wer hat den Gedanken 
Ins Herz dir gezinnt,
Daß ich soll den Garten,
Die Rosen nicht sehn?
Du gefällst meinen Augen,
Das muß ich gestehn.
