Tambourliedchen
The Drummer's song

Candidus

I play my drum rolls loud enough
To make your bones and marrow rattle,
And thatís why I think of my pretty love.
Blue-grey blueís the colour of her eyes.

For when I think of her eyes so bright
It tempers the drum-headís noisy sound;
The beat rings out so clean and tight.
Blue-grey blue are my dearestís eyes.
