Das schönste Auge, das ich weiß

Language: German (Deutsch)

Das schönste Auge, das ich weiß, 
Das ist der volle Becher.
Es lächelt stets mit bestem Fleiß,
Wenn an es blickt ein Zecher. 
Es furchet nicht die Augenbraun,
Wann Liebe will in's Auge schau'n,
Und läßt die Augenlieder
Nicht neidisch vor einem nieder.
