Es blasen die blauen Husaren
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT FRE ITA
Es blasen die blauen Husaren
und reiten zum [Tor]1 hinaus;
da komm' ich, Geliebte, und bringe
dir einen [Rosenstrauß]2.

Das war eine wilde Wirtschaft!
[Kriegsvolk und Landesplag']3!
Sogar in deinem Herzen
viel Einquartierung lag.
