Tambourliedchen

Language: German

Den Wirbel schlag' ich gar so stark,
Daß euch erzittert Bein und Mark,
Drum denk' ich ans schön Schätzelein,
Blaugrau, 
Blau,
Blaugrau,
Blau
Ist seiner Augen Schein.

Und denk' ich an den Schein so hell,
Von selber dämpft das Trommelfell,
Den wilden Ton, klingt hell und rein:
Blaugrau,
Blau,
Blaugrau, 
Blau 
Sind Liebchens Äugelein.

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, it is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
