Das Mägdlein trat aus dem Fischerhaus,
Die Netze warf sie ins Meer hinaus!
Und wenn kein Fisch in das Netz ihr ging,
Die Fischerin doch die Herzen fing!

Die Winde streifen so kühl umher,
Erzählen leis' eine alte Mär!
Die See erglühet im Abendrot,
Die Fischerin fühlt nicht Liebesnot
Im Herzen! Im Herzen!

Fantasy
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
 The maiden stepped out of the fisherman's hut,
 and cast her nets out into the sea!
 And even if no fish entered the net,
 the fishergirl yet trapped some hearts!
 
 The winds blow so coolly about,
 softly telling an old folktale!
 The sea gleams in the dusk,
 the fishergirl does not feel love's sting
 in her heart, in her heart!
