Die Bekehrte

Language: German (Deutsch)

Bei dem Glanz der Abendröthe
Ging ich still den Wald entlang,
Damon saß und blies die Flöte,
Daß es von den Felsen klang,
So la la! . . .

Und er zog mich zu sich nieder,
Küßte mich so hold, so süß.
Und ich sagte: blase wieder!
Und der gute Junge blies,
So la la! . . .

Meine Ruh ist nun verloren,
Meine Freude floh davon,
Und ich hör' vor meinen Ohren
Immer nur den alten Ton,
So la la, le ralla! . . .
