Daß ich dich liebe, o Möpschen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Daß [ich dich liebe]1, o Möpschen,
Das ist [dir]2 wohlbekannt.
Wenn ich mit Zucker dich füttre,
So leckst du mir die Hand.

Du [willst]3 auch nur ein Hund sein,
Und willst nicht scheinen mehr;
All meine [übrigen]4 Freunde
Verstellen sich zu sehr.

That you adore me, my doggy

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

That you adore me, my doggy,
I always have firmly believed.
When have you failed to caress me,
For titbits that you received!

True, that you're only a doggy,
But to that role you adhere.
None of my other acquaintances
Are one half as sincere.
