Auf lang' muß i' scheiden
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Auf lang' muß i' scheiden 
In d'Fremd muß i' gehn, 
Und muß mi' verkleiden, 
Mein Dienderl zu seh'n.  

Zu Dir hab' i müss'n, 
Sonst war's mer zu weh, 
I' muß' Di' noch grüeß'n 
Mein Dienderl Ade  --  

Kann nit mit Dir sprecha, 
Fremd is Dir mein Kleid,  
Das Herz will mer brecha 
Vor Lieb und vor Leid.

Das Kleid is a neues,
Mein Herz aber nit, 
Das is gar a treues, 
Das bring' i' denn mit.
