Der böse Bach

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Du Bach mit den silbernen]1 Wellen,
Wie rinnest du heute so hin,
Als hättest du nie noch auf Erden,
Nie Böses gehabt im Sinn!

Du Bach mit den silbernen Wellen,
Was hab' ich dir doch gethan?
Du hast mir mein Gärtchen zerstöret
Und unseren Wiesenplan.

Du Bach mit den silbernen Wellen,
Einst warf ich Blumen dir nach --
Jetzt hab' ich nur Thränen und Klagen
Für dich, o du böser Bach!
