Zwei Geliebte, treu verbunden

Language: German (Deutsch)

Zwei Geliebte, treu verbunden,
Gehen durch die Welt spazoren,
Jedes hat sein Herz verloren,
Doch das Andre hat's gefunden.

Jeder trägt die leichte Last
Wie die Uhr am Kettchen fast.
Also geht's auf Steg und Wegen
Ruhig fort mit gleichen Schlägen.

"Schau, die können's!" sagen ferne
An der Himmelshöh' die Sterne.
"Wer sind sie?" gleich schrei'n [sie]1 da:
"Sigmund und Emilia!"

Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
