Ein männlicher Briefmark erlebte

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein männlicher Briefmark erlebte
Was Schönes, bevor er klebte.
Er war von einer Prinzessin beleckt.
Da war die Liebe in ihm erweckt.

Er wollte sie wiederküssen,
Da hat er verreisen müssen.
So liebte er sie vergebens.
Das ist die Tragik des Lebens!

A manly stamp

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

A manly stamp had a lovely experience,
Before he was stuck.
He was licked by a princess.
And so was love awakened in him.

He wanted to kiss her more,
But he was sent away.
Therefore he loved her to no avail.
Such is the tragedy of life!
