Schatzerl klein

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schatzerl klein,
Mußt nit traurig sein,
Eh das Jahr vergeht,
Bist du mein.
Eh das Jahr vergeht,
Grünt das Rosmarin,
Sagt der Pfarrer laut:
Nehmt's euch hin.
Grünt der Rosmarin,
Grünt der Myrtenstrauß
Und der Nagerlstock
Blüht im Haus.

Petite chérie

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Petite chérie
Tu ne dois pas être triste,
Avant que l'année ne soit finie,
Tu seras mienne.
Avant que l'année ne soit finie,
Le romarin verdira,
Et le curé dira tout haut :
Le romarin verdira,
Le bouquet de myrte verdira
Et l'œillet
Fleurira dans la maison.
