Gab den Ring das Mädchen

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Serbian (Српски)

Gab den Ring das Mädchen,
Ihn zurück dem Jüngling:
"Nimm den Ring zurücke,
Hassen Dich die Meinen,
Vater Dich und Mutter,
Bruder Dich und Schwester!
Doch nicht wolle, Knabe
Uebles von mir reden!
Bin ich doch, ich Arme!
Ein unselig Mädchen!
Säete Basilikum,
Wermuth ist ersprossen.
Wermuth, Wermuthskräutlein,
O Du bittre Blüthe!
Mögest Du nun schmücken.
Meine Hochzeitgäste,
Wenn sie -- o Unsel'ge!
Mich zu Grabe tragen!"
