Schön ist die Welt

Language: German (Deutsch)

Bruder Leichtsinn, so werd ich genannt,
und mit Recht, und mit Recht!
Immer offen das Herz, immer offen die Hand!
Die Banausen, sie sind mir nicht gut,
und mit Recht, und mit Recht!
Mir steckt der goldene Leichtsinn im Blut!
Sehnsucht, wo ziehst du mich hin?
Kann ich dem Alltag entflieh'n?
Hier auf den Höhen, wie frei kann ich atmen,
selig ist hier unser Herz!

Schön ist die Welt,
Wenn das Glück dir ein Märchen erzählt,
Liebe erblüht
Und singt zärtlich ihr ewiges Lied!
Schön ist die Welt,
wenn ein Schimmer von Glück sie erhellt,
schön ist die Welt,
wenn das Glück dir ein Märchen erzählt!

How beautiful the world is!

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Squanderer, spendthrift I am called,
and rightfully so, and rightfully so!
Always with an open heart and an open hand!
The small in mind, they look at me with a baleful eye,
and rightfully so, and rightfully so!
The recklessness is in my blood!
Restlessness, where will you lead me?
Can I leave the routine behind?
Here up on the hills I can finally breathe freely,
What a relief to our hearts!

How beautiful the world is,
If luck is on your side,
Telling you a tale of love
Eternely singing its tender song!
How beautiful the world is,
If life is promising like the rosy dawn,
How beautiful the world is,
If luck is on your side, telling you a tale of love.
