Ich gäb' was drum, wenn ich nur wüsst'

Language: German (Deutsch)

MARGARETE (ihre Zöpfe flechtend und aufbindend)
 Ich gäb' was drum, wenn ich nur wüsst',
 Wer heut der Herr gewesen ist!
 Er sah gewiss recht wacker aus,
 Und ist aus einem edlen Haus;
 Das konnt' ich ihm an der Stirne lesen --
 Er wär' auch sonst nicht so keck gewesen.
