Mir träumte wieder der alte Traum

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mir träumte wieder der alte Traum:
Es war eine Nacht im Maie,
Wir saßen unter dem Lindenbaum,
Und schwuren uns ewige Treue.

Das war ein Schwören und Schwören aufs neu,
Ein Kichern, ein Kosen, ein Küssen;
Daß ich gedenk des Schwures sei,
Hast du in die Hand mich gebissen.

O Liebchen mit den Äuglein klar!
O Liebchen schön und bissig!
Das Schwören in der Ordnung war,
Das Beißen war überflüssig.
