Ich ging einmal spazieren

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Ich ging einmal spazieren]1
   Am Meeresstrande:
Ach, da verlor mein Herz ich
   Im tiefen Sande.
Da fragt' ich an dem Strande
   Die Schiffer alle:
Daß du es trügst im Busen
   Sagten mir alle.
Nun komm' ich dich zu bitten,
   Bei Lieb' und Treue.
Ich ohne Herz, du aber
   Hast deren zweie!
Und weißt du was du thun kannst,
   Du liebe Kleine:
Behalt dir meines, schenke
   Du mir das deine.
