Tapetenblume bin ich fein

Language: German (Deutsch)

"Tapetenblume bin ich fein,
kehr' wieder ohne Ende,
doch statt im Mai'n und Mondenschein,
auf jeder der vier Wände.

Du siehst mich nimmerdar genung,
so weit du blickst im Stübchen,
und folgst du mir per Rösselsprung -
wirst du verrückt, mein Liebchen."

Translation(s): ENG FIN
