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!

Mein Mädel hat einen Rosenmund

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mein Mädel hat einen Rosenmund,
Und wer ihn küßt, der wird gesund;
O du! o du! o du!
O du schwarzbraunes Mägdelein,
Du la la la la!
Du läßt mir keine Ruh!

Die Wangen sind wie Morgenröt
Wie sie steht überm Winterschnee.
O du, o du, o du!
O du, schwarzbraunes Mägdelein, du 
lalalalala!
Du läßt mir keine Ruh!

Dein Augen sind wie die Nacht so schwarz, 
Wenn nur zwei Sternlein funkeln drin;
O du! o du! o du!
O du schwarzbraunes Mägdelein,
Du la la la la!
Du läßt mir keine Ruh!

Du Mädel bist wie der Himmel gut,
Wenn er über uns blau sich wölben tut;
O du! o du! o du!
O du schwarzbraunes Mägdelein,
Du la la la la!
Du läßt mir keine Ruh!

My lassie, you have rosy lips

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

My lassie, you have rosy lips,
when I kiss them my heart commits
to you, to you, to you,
to you my dark brown lassie fine,
you la, la, la, la, la,
I am obsessed with you!

Her cheeks are like a rosy dawn
that over snowy fields is born.
Oh you, oh you, oh you,
oh you my darkbrown sweetheart fine
you la, la, la, la, la,
I am obsessed with you!

Your eyes, they look as dark as night,
two little stars shine in them bright.
Oh you, oh you, oh you,
oh you my darkbrown sweetheart fine
you la, la, la, la, la,
I am obsessed with you!

Your nature's like a cloudless sky
that arches blue o'er us so high.
Oh you, oh you, oh you,
oh you my darkbrown truelove fine
you la, la, la, la , la,
I am obsessed with you!
