B. 086. First Love is the Right One


86. First Love is the Right One
(From Werben)
Translated by Ed Bernthal

“Why are you so sad, girl,
And are not making a wreath,
And are not making a wreath?”

‘Why should I not be sad?
My loved one is not home,
My loved one is not home.’

‘He went away to war,
Three miles from Prague,
Three miles from Prague.’

‘There was another for me to trust,
Who would take care of me,
Who would take care of me.’

‘We went to the dance in the tavern.
He danced with the others,
He danced with the others.’

‘I had to watch that
And sighed, so heavily,
And sighed so heavily.’

‘My loved one was coming home from the war
Right through the green forest,
Right through the green forest.’

‘There a tree was bent down,
And killed my sweetheart,
And killed my sweetheart.’

Oh the suffering, dear God!
How will I get another one,
How will I get another one?’

‘I had another one for a long time,
But no one was as faithful,
But no one was as faithful.

‘All that was told me,
Was meant to be sincere,
Was meant to be sincere.’

‘Now what we say to ourselves,
Is not always sincere,
Is not always sincere.’
