Die Post

Language: German (Deutsch)

Von der Straße her ein Posthorn klingt.
Was hat es, daß es so hoch aufspringt,
Mein Herz?

Die Post bringt keinen Brief für dich:
Was drängst du denn so wunderlich,
Mein Herz?

Nun ja, die Post [kömmt]1 aus der Stadt,
Wo ich ein liebes Liebchen hatt',
Mein Herz!

Willst wohl einmal hinübersehn,
Und fragen, wie es dort mag gehn,
Mein Herz?

De Post

Language: Frisian after the German (Deutsch)

Jinder op 'e dyk, de posthoarn klinkt.
Wat is it, dat dêr sa bûnz't en springt,
Myn hert?

De post bringt nea in brief foar dij,
wat trunet dij eltse kear opnij?
Myn hert?

Myn leafste wennet yn 'e stêd, 
gjin brief, dat makket my sa mêd, 
Myn hert!

Wolst dêr ris om dy hinne sjen   
en freegje, hat hja 't dêr nei't sin,
Myn hert?
