Ein Jüngling liebt ein Mädchen
A Lad loves a Lass

Dichterliebe A Poet's Love


A lad loves a lass,
But she fancies another
Till she sees him leave Mass
With his bride and her mother.

So annoyed is the lass,
She takes up with some bloke
Who just happens to pass.
For the lad, it's no joke!

Oh, it's nothing new,
These things happen, you'll find.
Just that, those they happen to
Tend to go out of their mind.
