You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Du mit deiner Fiedel

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du mit deiner Fiedel, 
bleibe hier nicht stehn,
weil mir Deine Liedel 
so zu Herzen gehn,
daß ich ohne weinen 
sie nicht hören kann,
und dann sehn mich immer 
alle Leut so an.

Einer kam vorbei hier, 
jünger noch als Du,
spielt auf seiner Geig' mir, 
und ich hörte zu.
Doch als er Almosen 
für sein Spiel erfrug,
gab ich ihm die Rosen, 
die ich grade trug.

Mußt nun weiter wandern 
alter Spielmann, gelt,
triffst vielleicht den andern 
in der weiten Welt,
sag ihm dann, es dächte 
sein ein Mägdelein,
dächte Tag und Nächte 
unaufhörlich sein.
