Burgen mit hohen

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Burgen mit hohen
 Mauern und Zinnen,
 Mädchen mit stolzen
 Höhnenden Sinnen
 Möcht' ich gewinnen!
 Kühn ist das Mühen,
 Herrlich der Lohn!

 Und die Trompete
 Lassen wir werben,
 Wie zu der Freude,
 So zum Verderben.
 Das ist ein Stürmen!
 Das ist ein Leben!

 Mädchen und Burgen
 Müssen sich geben.
 Kühn ist das Mühen,
 Herrlich der Lohn!
 Und die Soldaten
 Ziehen davon.
