Tu' nicht so spröde, schönes Kind

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Azerbaijani (Azərbaycan dili)

Tu' nicht so spröde, schönes Kind,
wenn ich noch spät vorüber geh'
und fasse dein weiches Händchen lind,
und heimlich einen Kuß erfleh'.

Der dir so schöne Huldigung
gebracht in reinem Liebesschmuck,
der braucht wohl nicht Entschuldigung,
für einen Kuß und Händedruck.

Es wird ein jeder Kuß von dir
ein klingend Lied in meinem Mund,
und jeder Händedruck gibt mir
zu einem neuen Kusse Grund.
