Mei Schätzerl ist hübsch

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mei Schätzerl ist hübsch, aber reich is es nit.
Was nützt mi der Reichtum, das Geld küss i nit.
Schön bin i nit, reich bin i wohl,
Geld hab i a ganz Beutele voll;
gehn mir nur drei Batzen ab,
dass i grad zwölf Kreuzer hab! -
Mei Schätzerl ist hübsch, aber reich is es nit.

Mein Schätzerl ist treu, ist so herzig, so gut,
und gibt's mir a Busserl, so wachst mir der Mut.
Drum gilt's mir mehr als alles Gold,
ist mir mein Schätzerl hold;
und wenn i stets bei ihm blieb,
wär mir's noch mal so lieb!
Mein Schätzerl ist treu wie hab i d'so lieb.
