Es singt ein Vogel im Walde

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es singt ein Vogel im Walde,
Ich weiß nicht was;
Es werden mir, wenn ich ihn höre,
Die Augen naß. 

Er singt: Ich singe so emsig,
Und weiß nicht was;
Und hat mich Keiner verstanden, 
Das reut mich ba&zlig;. 

Ja Vogel, lieber Vogel,
Ich kenne das;
Ich habe dich verstanden
Und weiß nicht was.
