Unter den Zweigen in tiefer Nacht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Unter den Zweigen in tiefer Nacht
Dacht' ich an deine Küsse;
Siedete mir das Blut mit Macht
Von all der brennenden Süße.

Kocht im Kessel ein Wässerlein,
Bleibt der Kessel nicht liegen;
Ei, wie hoch in die Luft hinein
Ließ ich mein Hütlein fliegen!

Wo es sich im Gezweig verlor,
Mögen die Vögel wissen;
Da ich lange den Kopf verlor,
Kann ich den Hut wohl missen.
