George Reeves & Maggie Teyte

Die Mainacht, Op.43 No.2

Wann der silberne Mond durch die Gestrauche blinkt
Und sein schlummerndes Licht über den Rasen streut,
Und die Nachtigall flotert,
Wandl' ich traurig vom Busch zu Busch.

Uberhüllet vom laub girret ein Tauben paar
Sein Entzuchen mir vor; aber ich vende mich,
Suche dunklere Schatten,

Und die einsame trane rinnt.

Wann, o lechelndes Bild, welches wie Morgenrot
Durch die Seele mir strahlt, find ich auf Erden dich?

Und die einsame Trane bebt mir heisser die Wang herab!

When the silver moon through the shrubs beams,
And throws its slumbering light on the grass,

And the nightingale flutes [sings]
I wander sadly from bush to bush.
Shrouded by foliage, coos a pair of doves
to me their ecstasy; but I turn away,
Seeking darker shadows.

And a single tear flows down my cheek.
When, O smiling image, that like as dawn.
Through my soul radiates, find I you on the earth?
And the single tear trembling hot down my cheek.

  • Annoyed says

    "We will not show you the lyrics because of copyright reasons. Sorry." Brahms (the composer) died in 1897, and Holty (who wrote the lyrics) died in 1776. Since then the song has been performed by thousands of people, and still is. The idea that "Decca" or "George Reeves & Maggie Teyte" own the copyright to Die Mainacht is absurd. Whatever your reasons are for making this webpage completely worthless, they're not copyright reasons.
