Vor der Stadt

Language: German (Deutsch)

Zwei Musikanten ziehn daher
Vom Wald aus weiter Ferne,
Der eine ist verliebt gar sehr,
Der andre wär es gerne.

[Die]1 stehn allhier im kalten Wind
Und singen schön und geigen:
Ob nicht ein süßverträumtes Kind
Am Fenster sich wollt' zeigen?

Two musicians arrive here

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Two musicians arrive here
from a forest far away:
one is very much in love,
and the other wishes he were.

They stand here in the cold wind
and sing and play so fairly:
Wouldn't some sweetly dreaming maiden
like to appear at her window?
