Deine süßen, rothen Lippen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Deine süßen, rothen Lippen,    
Holdes, braunes Mädel, sprich! 
Haben mehr sie noch als Lächeln, 
Haben Küße sie für mich? 

Deine wunderklaren Augen,
Holdes, braunes Mädel, du! 
Sind's die Sonne meines Glückes,
Sind's die Gräber meiner Ruh'? 

Laß' mich länger nicht, du Schönste,
Zwischen Höll und Himmel sein! 
Sei die Meine, sei's für ewig,
Holdes, braunes Mägdelein!
