An Dich verschwendet hat mein Herz

Language: German (Deutsch)

An Dich verschwendet hat mein Herz
Sein bestes Gut und Blut,
Sein Träumen, Lachen und Weinen,
Sein Zagen und seinen Mut.

Und Du - Du gehst und blickst vorbei,
Du stolze Königin,
Du weisst, und willst [nicht]1 wissen,
Wie ganz verarmt ich bin;

Wie [bettelarm, wie]2 bettelstolz
Ich meine Strasse zieh'!
[Zum]3 Bettler bin ich geworden,
Doch betteln werd' ich nie!
