Sommerlust im Walde

Language: German (Deutsch)

Einstmals ging ich spazieren 
durch einen grünen Wald,
da hört' ich jubilieren 
die Vöglein jung und alt,
doch tät mir wohl gefallen 
die Nachtigall vor allen.
Fa la la, Fa la la la la!

Ob auch all' Vöglein sungen 
gar lieblich mit Stimmen all',
das weit es hat erklungen
wohl über Berg und Tal,
doch tät mir wohl gefallen 
die Nachtigall vor allen.
Fa la la, Fa la la la la!
