Wer ein Liebchen hat gefunden,
Die es treu und redlich meint,
Lohn' es ihr durch tausend Küsse;
Mach' ihr all das Leben süße,
Sei ihr Tröster, sei ihr Freund.
If you should ever find a sweetheart
Who will live for you and you alone,
Give her at least a thousand kisses,
And make her life a dream come true,
As her comfort and very best friend!
