Lied für XXX

Language: German (Deutsch)

Leicht, wie gaukelnde Sylphiden,
Flattern süsser Schwärmereien
Auf den süssen Rose bleiben
Lose wie die Waidchen hin.
Küsse diese, küsse jene,
Küsse, küsse warm und heiss.
Fessle flüchtig Alles Schöne
Rasch in deinen Zauberkreis.
In dem Spiel beseelten Träumen,
Wiege, süsse Träumereien
Über junge Blüten Keime
Träumerisch dein Leben hin.
Träume wie die Rosen währen,
Wenn die Weste sie umwehn,
Ach, die Wahrheit sind die Tränen
Nur im Träumen lebt sich's schön.
