Was singt [ihr]1 und sagt ihr mir, Vögelein,
Von Liebe?
Was klingt ihr und klagt ihr ins Herz mir hinein
Von Liebe?
Ihr habt mir gesagt und gesungen genug,
Ich hab' euch gehört und verstanden genug
Von Liebe,
Von Liebe, von Liebe.

O singt nun, o sagt nun dem Mägdelein
Von Liebe!
O klingt nun, o klagt nun ins Herz ihr hinein
Von Liebe!
Und wenn ihr des Mägdeleins Herz mir ersingt,
Dann ewig, o Vögelein, sagt mir und singt
Von Liebe,
Von Liebe, von Liebe!
