Poor little heart! (German translation)

English
A A

Poor little heart!

Poor little heart!
Did they forget thee?
Then dinna care! Then dinna care!
 
Proud little heart!
Did they forsake thee?
Be debonair! Be debonair!
 
Frail little heart!
I would not break thee:
Could'st credit me? Could'st credit me?
 
Gay little heart!
Like morning glory
Thou'll wilted be; thou'll wilted be!

Trauriges Herz!

Trauriges Herz!
Vergaßen sie dich?
Ärger dich nicht! Ärger dich nicht!
 
Hoffärtig Herz!
Verließen sie dich!?
Hab Zuversicht! Hab Zuversicht!
 
Fragiles Herz!
Nie breche ich dich:
Baust du auf mich? Baust du auf mich?
 
Heiteres Herz!
Wie Windengewächs
welkst du dahin; welkst du dahin!
 
Thanks!
thanked 1 time
