Lied von der Weide

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

Arm Mädchen singend am Sahlbaum saß sie,
Singt alle grüne Weide,
Die Hand auf dem Busen, das Haupt auf dem Knie,
Singt Weide, Weide, Weide.
Die Welle rann weiter und raunt ihr Gewein,
Singt Weide, Weide, Weide.
Die Träne troff bitter, erweichte die Stein,
Singt Weide, Weide, Weide.
Singt all grüne Weide, die brauch ich zum Kranz,
Soll niemand ihn schelten, sein Groll ist mir recht.
Ich nannte mein Lieb falsch' Lieb, was sagte er dann?
Singt Weide, Weide, Weide.
Ich krieg noch viel Mädel, du küßt noch viel Mann,
