Ich, Egoist!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich, Egoist! -- Wenn ichs nicht besser wüßte!
Der Neid, das ist der Egoiste;
Und was ich auch für Wege geloffen,
Aufm Neidpfad habt ihr mich nie betroffen.

Me! Egoist!

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Me! Egoist! -- When I know no better!
Envy? That is the egoist;
And when I am also on this path,
On the ego-avenue I have met no one else.
