Schwesterlein, Schwesterlein, wann gehn...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schwesterlein, Schwesterlein, wann gehn wir nach Haus?
»Morgen wenn die Hahnen krähn,
Wolln wir nach Hause gehn,
Brüderlein, Brüderlein, dann gehn wir nach Haus.«

Schwesterlein, Schwesterlein, wann gehn wir nach Haus?
Morgen, wenn der Tag anbricht,
eh end't die Freude nicht,
Brüderlein, Brüderlein, der fröhliche Braus.

Schwesterlein, Schwesterlein, wohl ist es Zeit.
»Mein Liebster tanzt mit mir,
Geh ich, tanzt er mit ihr,
Brüderlein, Brüderlein, laß du mich heut.«

Schwesterlein, Schwesterlein, was bist du blaß?
»Das macht der Morgenschein
Auf meinen Wängelein,
Brüderlein, Brüderlein, die vom Taue naß.«

Schwesterlein, Schwesterlein, du wankest so matt?
»Suche die Kammertür,
Suche mein Bettlein mir
Brüderlein, es wird fein unterm Rasen sein.«
