Vorschlag zur Güte

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Du gefällst mir so wohl, mein liebes Kind,
 Und wie wir hier beieinander sind,
 So möcht' ich nimmer scheiden;
 Da wär' es wohl uns beiden.

 Gefall' ich dir, so gefällst du mir;
 Du sagst es frei, ich sag' es dir.
 Eh nun! Heiraten wir eben!
 Das übrige wird sich geben.

 Heiraten, Engel, ist wunderlich Wort;
 Ich meint', da müsst' ich gleich wieder fort.

 Was ist's denn so großes Leiden?
 Geht's nicht, so lassen wir uns scheiden.
