Meinen schönsten Liebesantrag

Language: German (Deutsch)

Meinen schönsten Liebesantrag
Suchst du ängstlich zu verneinen;
Frag ich dann: ob das ein Korb sei?
Fängst du plötzlich an zu weinen.

Selten bet ich, drum erhör mich,
Lieber Gott! Hilf dieser Dirne,
Trockne ihre süßen Tränen
Und erleuchte ihr Gehirne.

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 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.

Na mol'by moi uporno

Language: Russian (Русский)

Na mol'by moi uporno
Net i net ty govorish'.
A skazhu l': togda prostimsja!
Ty rydajesh' i korish'…

Redko ja moljus', o Bozhe!
Uspokoj jejo ty razom!
Osushi jejo ty sljozy,
Prosveti jejo ty razum!
