Original text and translations

German.png German text

Der Mond steht uber dem Berge,
So recht fur verliebte Leut;
Im Garten Rieselt ein Brunnen,
Sonst Stille weit und breit.

Neben der Mauer im Schatten,
Da stehn der Studenten drei
Mit Flot und Geig und Zither,
Und singen und splielen dabei.

Die Klange schleichen der Schonsten
Sacht in den Traum hirlein,
Sie schaut den blonden Geliebten
Und lispelt: "VergiB nicht mein!"

English.png English translation

The moon is above the mountain,
just right for people in love.
In the garden trickles a fountain;
otherwise, silence is far and wide.

By teh wall, in teh shadows,
stand three students
with flute and fiddle and Zither,
singing and playing to thei rsinging.

The sounds steal softly into the
most beautiful girl's dream;
she sees her blond sweetheat
and whispers "Forget me not!"
