Boten sendet aus der Mai

Language: German (Deutsch)

Boten sendet aus der Mai,
Ob wir's nicht vergaßen,
Ladet uns zum Ringelrei,
Ruft in alle Straßen.
Spielmann setzt die Geig' ans Kinn,
Horche, liebes Magedin!

Lege dich an meine Brust,
Will schon lest dich halten,
Bei der Jungen Lieb' und Lust
Freuen sich die Alten.
Leichter Fuß hat leichten Sinn,
Springe, liebes Magedin!

Einen Kuß auch, Mündel roth,
Darfst du nicht versagen,
Wirst um kleine Herzensnoth
Mich nicht gleich verklagen.
Gieb ihn her und nimm ihn hin.
Lache, liebes Magedin!
