Weh, wie zornig ist das Mädchen!

Ist so zornig, wie das Meer.

Weh, wie zornig ist das Mädchen!

Woe, how wrathful is the maiden

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Woe, how wrathful is the maiden!
[Who can speak with her, who?]1

The maiden walks in the mountains
Behind her flock,
She is as beautiful as the flowers,
As wrathful as the sea.

Woe, how wrathful is the maiden!
[Who can speak with her, who?]1
