Mich zieht es nach dem Dorfe hin

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Scottish (Scots)

  Mich zieht es nach dem [Dorfe]1 hin,
In's Gärtchen, wo sie oft erschien;
Mich zieht es nach dem [Dorfe]1 hin
Und meiner süßen, holden Jean!
Und Niemand wisse, ahne kaum,
Woher ich kam, wohin ich geh',
Als Liebchen, das ich dort am Baum
Verstohlen meiner harren seh'.

  Ja, zu der Eiche wird sie gehn,
Wohin wir heimlich uns bestellt. --
Wie doch bei jedem Wiedersehn
Mein Liebchen doppelt mir gefällt!
Mich zieht es nach dem [Dorfe]1 hin,
In's Gärtchen, wo sie oft erschien:
Mich zieht es nach dem [Dorfe]1 hin,
[Zu]2 meiner süßen, holden Jean!
