You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Nimmer glaub ich, junge Schöne

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nimmer glaub ich, junge Schöne,
Was die spröde Lippe spricht;
Solche große schwarze Augen,
Solche hat die Tugend nicht.

Diese braungestreifte Lüge,
Streif sie ab; ich liebe dich.
Laß dein weißes Herz mich küssen -
Weißes Herz, verstehst du mich?


Translation(s): ENG FRE

Jeune belle, jamais je ne crois

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Jeune belle, jamais je ne crois
Ce que dit une bouche prude ;
De tels grands yeux noirs,
De tels yeux ne sont pas vertueux.

Ce mensonge rayé de brun,
Retire-le ; je t'aime.
Laisse ton cœur blanc m'embrasser --
Cœur blanc, me comprends-tu ?
