Bist du manchmal auch verstimmt

Language: German (Deutsch)

Bist du manchmal auch verstimmt,
Drück dich zärtlich an mein Herze,
Daß mirs fast den Atem nimmt,
Streich und kneif in süßem Scherze,
Wie ein rechter Liebestor
Lehn ich sanft an dich die Wange
Und du singst mir fein ins Ohr.
Wohl im Hofe bei dem Klange
Katze miaut, Hund heult und bellt,
Nachbar schimpft mit wilder Miene -
Doch was kümmert uns die Welt,
Süße, traute Violine!
