Der Jäger

Language: German

Mein Lieb ist ein Jäger, und grün ist sein Kleid,
Und blau ist sein Auge, nur sein Herz ist zu weit.

Mein Lieb ist ein Jäger, trifft immer ins Ziel,
Und Mädchen berückt er, so viel er nur will.

Mein Lieb ist ein Jäger, kennt Wege und Spur,
Zu mir aber kommt er durch die Kirchtüre nur!



Translation(s): ENG FRE DUT

Notes about green, red, and white dots

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 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.
