Unüberwindlich

Language: German (Deutsch)

Hab' ich tausendmal geschworen
Dieser Flasche nicht zu trauen,
Bin ich doch wie neugeboren,
Läßt mein Schenke fern sie schauen.

Alles ist an ihr zu loben,
Glaskristall und Purpurwein;
Wird der Propf herausgehoben,
Sie ist leer und ich nicht mein.

Hab' ich tausendmal geschworen,
Dieser Falschen nicht zu trauen,
Und doch bin ich neugeboren,
Läßt sie sich ins Auge schauen.

Mag sie doch mit mir verfahren,
Wie's dem stärksten Mann geschah.
Deine Scher' in meinen Haaren,
Allerliebste Delila!
