Text:
“Wenn du zu meinem Schätzchen kommst, sag’ ich lies schön grüssen.
Wenn sie fragt wie’s mir ging, sag’ auf beiden Füssen.
Wenn sie fragt ob ich krank sei, sag’ ich wär gestorben.
Wenn sie an zu weinen fängt, sag’ ich käme morgen.”

(If you see my sweetheart, send her my greetings.
If she asks how I am, tell her I’m standing on both feet.
If she asks if I’m ill, tell her I died.
If she starts to cry, tell her I’ll be back tomorrow.)

Text is from a folk song entitled “Des Knaben Wunderhorn” (The Youth’s Magic Horn), written by Justus Möser in 1778 and set to music in 1899 by Max Reger.
