Du schönes Fischermädchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du schönes Fischermädchen,
Siehst du den Abendstern?
O komm zur stillen Hütte,
Wer liebt ist einsam gern!

In deine Fesseln lege
Den trotzigen wilden Sinn,
Sanft wie die Rosenwalle
Lenk' ihn zum Frieden hin.

Da draussen auf dem Meere
Ist oft Getahr und Not,
Senk' in mein Herz den Anker
Von deinem Lebensboot.1

Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE

Komm! Komm!
Du schönes Fischermädchen, komm, komm,
Wir kosen Hand in Hand.
Komm! Komm! Komm!
