Die Trommel hallt durch die Straßen, 
Die Pfeifer gehn voran, 
So ziehen wir durch die Gassen, 
Geschlossen Mann an Mann. 

Da sah ich grüßen und winken 
Der Mägdlein mancherlei, 
Da sah ich dein Auge blinken 
Wie Sonnenglanz im Mai! 

Zum Sturm mag es nun gehen, 
Zur finsteren Schlacht -- mag sein! 
Weil ich noch einmal gesehen 
Solch' fröhlichen Sonnenschein.
