Rosen pflücke, Rosen blühn

Language: German (Deutsch)

Rosen pflücke, Rosen blühn,
Morgen ist nicht heut!
Keine Stunde laß entfliehn,
Flüchtig ist die Zeit.

[Trink, küsse! Sieh]1 es ist 
Heut Gelegenheit!
Weißt du, wo du morgen bist?
Flüchtig ist die Zeit.

Aufschub einer guten Tat
Hat schon oft [gereut]2!
Hurtig leben ist mein Rat,
Flüchtig ist die Zeit.
