Ich poch' und klopf', öffnet die Thür'!
Schätzchen mein Tüchlein ich ließ es bei dir.
Während wir eingenickt, ward ich beraubt;
jemand nahm's Tüchlein mir weg unter'm Haupt.

"Niemand nahm's fort, lass' Sorgen sein!
Liegt's auf dem Tischchen doch im Kämmerlein.
Heute wenn's Abend wird: dann komme du,
dann kriegst dein Tuch und ein Küßchen dazu!"
