Einst ging ich meinem Mädchen nach

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Einst ging ich meinem Mädchen nach
Tief in den Wald, in den Wald hinein,
Und fiel ihr um den Hals, und ach!
Droht sie, ich werde schrein.

Da rief ich trotzig ha! ich will
Den tödten, der uns stört!
Still, lispelt sie, still! Geliebter, still!
Daß ja dich niemand hört.
