Vagantenliedchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Blondköpfchen rechts - Schwarzköpfchen links -
Wen nun zuerst soll ich küssen?
Weiß nicht, wer süßer, wer reizender ist -
Will es auch gar nicht wissen.
 
Wenn dich mit ihrem wonnigen Duft
Rose und Lilie entzücken -
Fragst du wohl lang, wer die schön're sei?
Beide wirst du sie pflücken!
 
Blondköpfchen rechts - Schwarzköpfchen links -
Wen nun zuerst soll ich küssen?
Weiß nicht, wer süßer, wer reizender ist -
Will es auch gar nicht wissen!
