Komm, Mädchen, an dein Fenster

Language: German (Deutsch)

Komm, [Mädchen]1, an dein Fenster, 
Komm, wenn die Schatten düstern, 
Komm, wenn die Sterne funkeln, 
Und halte deine Wacht! 
Ich werde dir im Dunkeln, 
Ein Wörtchen, ein geheimes, 
Zigeunerisches, flüstern; 
Dann rette dich in's Freie, 
Dann wirf dich an die Brust mir, 
Dann fliehe mit dem Liebsten 
Vertraulich in die Nacht.
