Mein Schatzerl is hübsch

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mein Schatzerl is hübsch,
Aber reich is et nit.
Was nützt mir der Reichtum?
Das Geld küss i nit.

Schön bin i net, reich bin i wohl,
Geld hat? i a ganz Beutel voll,
Geh?n mir nur drei Batzen ab,
Dass i grad? zwölf Kreuzer hab'.

Mein Schatzerl is hübsch,
Aber reich is et nit.

Mein Schatzerl is fromm,
Is so herzig, so gut,
Und gibt's mir a Busserl,
So wächst mi der Mut.

Drum gibt's mir mehr als alles Gold,
Is mi mein Schatzerl hold,
Und wenn i stets bei ihm bleib,
Wär's mi um eins so lieb!

Mein Schatzerl is treu,
Wie hab' ich es so lieb.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
