You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Es blasen die blauen Husaren

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es blasen die blauen Husaren
und reiten zum Tor hinaus;
da komm' ich, Geliebte, und bringe
dir einen Rosenstrauß.

Das war eine wilde Wirtschaft!
Kriegsvolk und Landesplag'!
Sogar in deinem Herzen
viel Einquartierung lag.

Suonano la tromba gli ussari blu

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

Suonano la tromba gli ussari blu
e cavalcando se ne vanno via,
ora vengo, mia cara,
e ti porto un mazzo di rose.

E' stata una cosa tremenda!
Quanta gente di guerra e che disgrazia per il paese!
Perfino el tuo cuore 
hanno preso quartiere!
