Ich hatte eine Nachtigall

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich hatte eine Nachtigall,
die sang so schön, die sang so schön,
sie ist davon geflogen,
weit über Thal und Höh'n.
Ich hatt' ein junges Röselein,
so frisch und klar, so frisch und klar,
es ist mir weggestohlen,
derweil ich ferne war.
Ich hatte einen lieben Schatz,
mein Glück, mein Glanz, mein Glück, mein Glanz!
sie ist davon gezogen,
trug einen Myrthenkranz!
