Meinen schönsten Liebesantrag

Language: German (Deutsch)

Meinen schönsten Liebesantrag
Suchst du ängstlich zu verneinen;
Frag ich dann: ob das ein Korb sei?
Fängst du plötzlich an zu weinen.

Selten bet ich, drum erhör mich,
Lieber Gott! Hilf dieser Dirne,
Trockne ihre süßen Tränen
Und erleuchte ihr Gehirne.
