Zündet die Lampen an

Language: German (Deutsch)

Zündet die Lampen an,
Windet auch Kränze dran, 
Hell sei das Haus! 
Ehret die nächtige 
Feier mit Tanz und Schmaus,
Capulet der Prächtige 
Richtet sie aus. 

Kommet, ihr Freunde viel,
Gastlich zu Tanz und Spiel,
Frei ist die Bahn! 
Was er bereitete,
Wohl ists getan. 
Seltsam Gekleidete 
Treten heran.
