Original text and translations

German.png German text

1. Auf ihrem Leibrößlein,
So weiß wie der Schnee,
Die schönste Prinzessin
Reit't durch die Allee.

2. Der Weg, den das Rößlein
Hintanzet so hold,
Der Sand, den ich streute,
Er blinket wie Gold.

3. Du rosenfarbs Hütlein,
Wohl auf and wohl ab,
O wirf eine Feder
Verstohlen herab!

4. Und willst du dagegen
Eine Blüte von mir,
Nimm tausend für eine,
Nimm alle dafür!

English.png English translation

1. On her fav'rite pony,
as white as the snow,
the princess in beauty
ariding will go.

2. The way, where her pony
now prances so fair
it sparkles like silver
with sand I’ve strewn there.

3. O little pink hat
that bobs up and then down,
just one stolen feather
for me do throw down!

4. Should you in return
wish a flower from me,
not one but a thousand,
they all are for thee!
