1. Im wunderschönen Monat Mai [sung text not yet checked]

Im wunderschönen Monat Mai,
Als alle Knospen sprangen, 1 
Da ist in meinem Herzen
Die Liebe aufgegangen.

Im wunderschönen Monat Mai,
Als alle Vögel sangen, 2
Da hab' ich ihr gestanden
Mein Sehnen und Verlangen.

2. Lieb Liebchen leg's Händchen auf's Herze mein [sung text not yet checked]

Lieb' Liebchen, leg's Händchen [aufs]1 Herze mein; -
Ach, hörst du, wie's [pochet]2 im Kämmerlein?
Da hauset ein Zimmermann schlimm und arg,
Der zimmert mir einen Totensarg.

[Es]3 hämmert und klopfet bei Tag und bei Nacht;
[Es]3 hat mich schon längst um den Schlaf gebracht.
Ach! sputet Euch, Meister Zimmermann,
Damit ich [balde]4 schlafen kann.

3. Ballade [sung text not yet checked]

Die heil'gen drei Kön'ge aus Morgenland,
Sie frugen in jedem Städtchen:
Wo geht der Weg nach Bethlehem,
Ihr lieben Buben und Mädchen?

Die Jungen und Alten, sie [wußten es]1 nicht,
Die Könige zogen weiter;
Sie folgten einem goldenen Stern,
Der leuchtete lieblich und heiter.

Der Stern blieb stehn über Joseph's Haus,
Da sind sie [hineingegangen]2;
Das Öchslein brüllte, das Kindlein schrie,
Die heil'gen drei Könige sangen.

Entflieh mit mir und sei mein Weib,
Und ruh' an meinem Herzen aus;
[Fern in der Fremde]1 sei mein Herz

[Gehst du nicht mit, so sterb ich hier]3
Und du bist einsam und allein;
Und bleibst du auch im Vaterhaus,
Wirst doch wie in der Fremde sein.

Lehn deine Wang' an meine Wang',
Dann fliessen die Tränen zusammen;
Und an mein Herz drück fest dein Herz,
Dann schlagen zusammen die Flammen!

Und wenn in die große Flamme fliesst
Der Strom von unsern Tränen,
Und wenn [dich mein Arm]1 gewaltig umschließt -
Sterb' ich vor Liebessehnen!

5. O lägg din kind intill min kind [sung text checked 1 time]

O lägg din kind intill min kind,
Då Mötas de, tårarnas strömmar;
Mitt hjärta till ditt hjärta tryck
Som i mina ljuvaste drömmar.

Men när jag dig håller i min arm,
Ömt till mitt hjärta dig sluter
Av kärlek och längtan förgås jag då
Och sista sucken jag gjuter.

7. Deine weissen Lilienfinger [sung text checked 1 time]

Deine weißen Lilienfinger,
Könnt ich sie noch einmal küssen,
Und sie drücken an mein Herz,
Und vergehn in stillem Weinen! 

Deine klaren Veilchenaugen
Schweben vor mir Tag und Nacht,
Und mich quält es: was bedeuten
Diese süßen, blauen Rätsel?

8. Volkslied [sung text not yet checked]

Es fiel ein Reif in der Frühlingsnacht,    
Es fiel auf die [zarten]1 Blaublümelein:
Sie sind verwelket, [verdorrt]2.

Ein Jüngling hatte ein Mädchen lieb;   
Sie flohen heimlich [von]3 Hause fort,
Es [wußt']4 weder Vater noch Mutter.

Sie sind gewandert hin und her,
Sie haben gehabt weder Glück noch Stern,
Sie sind [verdorben, gestorben]5.
