Holder du af mig

Language: Norwegian (Bokmål)

Holder du af mig,
holder jeg af dig
alle mine levedage;
sommeren var kort,
græsset blegner bort,
kommer med vor leg tilbage.

Hvad du sa' ifjor,
husker jeg i år
sidder som en fugl i karmen,
kakker på og slår,
synger lidt og spår
lykke under solevarmen.

Litli-litli-lu! 
hører du mig nu,
gutten bag ved birkehejen? 
ordene vil gå,
mørket falder på,
kanske du kan vise vejen. 

Sjo-i, sjo-i, hys! 
sang jeg om et kys? 
nej, det gjorde jeg vist ikke. 
Hørte du det, du? 
kom det ej i hu,
jeg vil lade afbud skikke.

[O]1 godnat, godnat!
drømmen har mig fat,
den om dine milde øjne
og de tavse ord,
som af krogen fór,
o, de vare så forfløjne!

Nu jeg lukker til,
er der mer, du vil? 
tonerne tilbage trille,
lokker mig og ler,
ville du mig mer? 
aftnen er så varm og stille.
