German.png German text

1. Dort an der Kirchhofmauer,
da sitz' ich auf der Lauer,
da sitz' ich gar zu gern;
es regt sich im Holunder,
es regnet mir herunter
Rosin' and Mandelkern.

2. Waldwibichlein, das kleine,
das goldige, das feine,
das hat es mir gebracht.
Es hat ein Schloß im Berge,
das hüten sieben Zwerge,
darin ist große Pracht.

3. Und es hat mir versprochen,
in aberhundert Wochen,
wenn Agnes wacker sei,
da käm' es in dem Schlitten,
zu Gaste mich zu bitten;
da seid fein auch dabei!

1. There by the churchyard wall
I sit waiting;
too well I love to sit there;
there is a rustling in the elderbush,
here underneath it's raining
raisins and almonds.

2. A little nuthatch,
golden, dainty,
has brought it to me.
He has a castle in the mountains,
where the seven dwarfs live,
it is most splendid there

3. And he promised me
that, in about hundred weeks,
if Agnes is good,
he would come in a sled
to invite me as a guest,
you can come, too!
