Ich ging bei Nacht einst über Land

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich ging bei Nacht einst über Land,
ein Bürschlein traf ich draußen,
das hat 'nen Stutzen in der Hand
und zielt auf mich voll Grausen.

Ich renne, da ich mich erbos',
auf ihn in vollem Rasen,
da drückt das kecke Bürschlein los
und ich stürzt' auf die Nasen.

Er aber lacht mir ins Gesicht,
daß er mich angeschossen,
Cupido war der kleine Wicht
das hat mich sehr verdrossen.
