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!

Der Staub ist heiß, die Sonne glüht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Staub ist heiß, die Sonne glüht,
Vom langen Wandern bin ich müd;
Sieh da, im Schatten der Linden
Muß ich ein Wirtshaus finden!

Gott grüß' dich, schöne Kellnerin!
Du siehst wohl, daß ich müde bin;
O reiche dem durstigen Zecher
Zum Rande voll den Becher!

Dein Wohl, dein Wohl, vielholdes Kind!
Ei, wie dir so rosig die Wangen sind,
Und deine Augen wie Kohlen,
Die funkeln schelmisch verstohlen.

Dein Wein ist süß, dein Wein ist klar;
Doch schau' ich dir auf die Lippen gar,
Da dünkt von deinem Munde
Ein Kuß mir noch süßer zur Stunde.

Du sagst nicht ja, du sagst nicht nein!
Da muß ich denn schon herzhaft sein;
Da hast ihn - gib mir ihn wieder! -
Was schlägst du die Augen nieder?

Ein braver Bursch, 'ne schöne Maid,
Wo die sich treffen allezeit,
Da soll ein Küßchen in Ehren
Ihnen kein Narr verwehren.
