Herz, mein Herz, warum so traurig?

Language: German (Deutsch)

Herz, mein Herz, warum so traurig?
und was soll das Ach und Weh?
'S ist ja schön im fremden Lande
Herz, mein Herz, was fehlt dir mehr?

Was mir fehlt? mir fehlt ja alles,
bin so gar verlassen hie.
Zwar ist's schön im fremden Lande
doch zur Heimath wird es nie.

Keiner hat uns lieb da draußen
keiner drückt so warm die Hand,
und kein Kindlein will mehr lächeln
wie daheim im Schweizerland.
