Stand ein Mädchen an dem Fenster

Language: German (Deutsch)

Stand ein Mädchen an dem Fenster,
Da es draußen Morgen war,
Kämmte sich die langen Haare,
Wusch sich ihre Äuglein klar.
Sangen Vöglein aller Arten,
Sonnenschein spielt' vor dem Haus,
Draußen überm schönen Garten
Flogen Wolken weit hinaus.
Und sie dehnt' sich in den Morgen,
Als ob sie noch schläfrig sei,
Ach, sie war so voller Sorgen,
Flocht ihr Haar und sang dabei:
"Wie ein Vöglein hell und reine,
Ziehet draußen muntre Lieb,
Lockt hinaus zum Sonnenscheine,
Ach, wer da zu Hause blieb'!"
