Fischlein gut

Language: German (Deutsch)

Fischlein gut
In der Fluth,
Hätt' es fast gefangen,
Aber schnell
Wie die Well'
Ist's davon gegangen.

Vöglein braun,
Das im Zaun
Hin und wider hüpfet,
Auf dem Nest
Hielt ich's fest,
Ist mir doch entschlüpfet.

Auf zwei Bein
Hab' ich dich erhaschet,
Kommst nicht los,
Straf' ist groß,
Denn du hast gepaschet.
Nahmst im Scherz
Mir mein Herz,
Und das ist nichts Kleines,
Schaff' es schnell
Mir zur Stell
Oder gieb mir deines!
