Original text and translations

German.png German text

Dat du min Leevsten büst,
dat du wull weeßt;
kumm bi de Nacht, kumm bi de Nacht,
sech, wo du heest.

Kumm du um Middernacht,
kumm du Klock een;
Vader slöpt, Moder slöpt,
ick slaap alleen.

Klopp an de Kammerdör,
fat an de Klink;
Vader meent, Moder meent,
dat deit de Wind.

English.png English translation

You are the man I dream of,
as well you know;
come to me at night,
whisper your name.

Come to me at midnight,
come to me at one;
father and mother will not stir;
I sleep alone.

Knock at my bedroom door,
lift the latch;
if father or mother hears,
they will think: ‘it’s just the wind’.
