Meine Jacke ist ganz noch

Language: German (Deutsch)

Meine Jacke ist ganz noch
Und mein Glas noch voll Gin!
Welt, geh' deiner Wege,
Ich frag' nicht, wohin?

Kein Haus, keine Heimat,
Kein Weib und kein Kind,
So wirbl' ich, ein Strohhalm,
In Wetter und Wind!

Well' auf und Well' nieder,
Bald dort und bald hier;
Welt, fragst du nach mir nicht,
Was frag' ich nach dir?
