You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Ich bin ein lustiger Wandersmann

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich bin ein [lustiger]1 Wandersmann,
Und hab' ich auch kein Geld,
Durch Berg und Thal
Find' ich ein offnes Zelt.

Zur goldnen Sonne heißt das Schild,
Da kehr' ich früh schon ein,
Der Perlenthau
Auf grüner Au
Ist mir der liebste Wein.

Das zweite Wirthshaus liegt im Wald
Genannt zum grünen Baum,
Den Tisch gedeckt
Und hingestreckt
Auf sammetweichen Raum.

Und Musikanten sitzen drinn,
Die spielen früh und spat,
Frau Nachtigall
Mit süßem Schall
Singt Alles gleich vom Blatt.

Und kömmt der Abend nun heran,
Winkt mir der goldne Stern,
Und wie er winkt
Und wie er blinkt,
Ich folg' ihm gar zu gern.

Da wird nicht lang erst angeklopft,
Feinsliebchen ruft herein.
Die mir vertraut
In's Auge schaut,
Gewiß, da kehr' ich ein!
