Auf der fernen See ein Segel steht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Auf der fernen See ein Segel steht,
Mein Schatz ist [auf der]1 See;
Der Wind mir an die Beine weht,
Der Wind, der Wind [von]2 der See.

Blas ihn her zu mir, blas ihn [schnell zu mir her]3,
Du Wind, du Wind [auf der]4 See;
Mein Herz ist [so tief, so tief]5 wie das Meer
Und so stark wie der Wind auf der See.
