Mein Aug' ist trüb, mein Mund ist stumm

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mein Aug' ist trüb, mein Mund ist stumm.
Du heißest mich reden, es sei darum.

Dein Aug' ist klar, dein Mund ist rot,
Und was du nur wünschest, das ist ein Gebot.

Mein Haar ist grau, mein Herz ist wund,
Du bist so jung, und bist so gesund.

Du heißest mich reden, und machst mir's so schwer.
Ich seh' dich so an, und zittre so sehr.


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
