Lyrics:

[English]
One spring morning bright and fair,
Tralalalalalala.
Roam’d a shepherdess and sang,
Tralalalalalala.
Young and beauteous free from care,
Thro’ the fields her clear notes rang
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalalala.
Of his lambs some two or three,
Tralalalalalala.
Thyrsis offer’d for a kiss,
Tralalalalalala.
First she eyed him, roguishly,
Then for answer sang but this,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalalala.
Ribbons did the next one offer,
And a third his heart so true,
But as with the lambs, the scoffer,
Laughed at hearts and ribbons too
Still twas
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalalala.

[German]
An dem reinsten Fruhlingsmorgen,
Tralalalalalala.
Ging die Schaferin und sang,
Tralalalalalala.
Jung und schon und ohne Sorgen,
Das es durch die Felder klang
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalalala.
Thyrsis bot iht fur en Maulchen,
Tralalalalalala.
Zwei, drei Schafchen gleich am Ort,
Tralalalalalala.
Schalkhaft blickte sie ein weilchen,
Doch sie sang und lachte fort,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalalala.
Und ein And’rer bot ihr Bander,
Und der Dritte bot sein Herz,
Doch sie trich mit Herz und Bandern,
So wiemit den Lammern Scherz.
Nur
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalala,
Tralalalalalala.
