Über's Jahr, liebster Schatz, über's...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Über's Jahr, [liebster]1 Schatz, über's Jahr,
wenn die Rosen blühen im Garten,
dann kannst du mich erwarten:
Dann schmücke dein bräutlich Haar.
Über's Jahr, mein Schatz, über's Jahr,
Über's Jahr, mein Schatz, über's Jahr.

Und kehr' ich zurück über's Jahr.
und bist du treu mir geblieben,
und hat sich bewährt dein Lieben:
Dann treten wir zum Altar.
Über's Jahr, mein Schatz, über's Jahr,
Über's Jahr, mein Schatz, über's Jahr.

Und kehr' ich nicht zurück über's Jahrf,
wenn der Kukuksruf verklungen,
dann hat die See mich verschlungen,
dann leb' wohl auf immerdar.
Über's Jahr, mein Schatz, über's Jahr,
Über's Jahr, mein Schatz, über's Jahr.

In one year

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

In one year, sweetheart dear, in a year, 
When the roses bloom all glowing
Thow mayst await my coming:
For the bridal adorn thy hair.
In one year, my love, in a year,
in one year, my love, in a year.

And should I return in a year,
Find thee thy troth still proving,
Still cherishing and loving:
At the altar thou'lt meet me, dear.
In a year, my love, in a year,
in one year, my love, in a year.

But should I not return in a year,
And the cuckoo call around thee,
The deepest sea hath found me.
And farewell for ever, dear.
In a year, my love, in a year,
in one year, my love, in a year.
