I found this and posted it on the "Auf der Walz" thread a couple of days ago - it's a good one, isn't it ?   This Schallerschacht Website also gives details of monthly song sessions of these Wandergesellen songs (in Germany- for those who can get there !) plus CDs and songbooks are available to order by post. Lots of interesting links, too.

G'day GUEST,Q, and jeanie,

It looks interesting - I need to direct my German-teaching friend to some of the German language sites, but I am very pleased to see that there is so much material to confirm some of my ideas on the German input into Waltzing Matilda!

Does anyone know how I can get the lyrics to an old German Love song that my Aunt Sophie from Canada used to sing to me when I was a young lad?

It starts off like this:

You might get the lyrics just a few lines below:



Du, du liegst mir im Herzen
du, du liegst mir im Sinn.
Du, du machst mir viel Schmerzen,
weißt nicht wie gut ich dir bin.
Ja, ja, ja, ja, weißt nicht wie gut ich dir bin.
Ja, ja, ja, ja, weißt nicht wie gut ich dir bin.

So, so wie ich dich liebe
so, so liebe auch mich.
Die, die zärtlichsten Triebe
fühle ich ewig für dich.
Ja, ja, ja, ja, fühle ich ewig für dich.
Ja, ja, ja, ja, fühle ich ewig für dich.

Doch, doch darf ich dir trauen
dir, dir mit leichtem Sinn?
Du, du kannst auf mich bauen
weißt ja wie gut ich dir bin!
Ja, ja, ja, ja, weißt ja wie gut ich dir bin!
Ja, ja, ja, ja, weißt ja wie gut ich dir bin!

Und, und wenn in der Ferne,
mir, mir dein Bild erscheint,
dann, dann wünscht ich so gerne
daß uns die Liebe vereint.
Ja, ja, ja, ja, daß uns die Liebe vereint.
Ja, ja, ja, ja, daß uns die Liebe vereint.

The collection is restricted to songs for journeymen only, telling about their craft - mostly bricklayers and carpenters. Till today some of them still follow an old tradition. After ending their apprenticeship (three years) they wander for three years and a day from one master craftsman to the next, working a time there and learning a lot more of their craft from other masters.
You know them by their typical black working suits and broad brimmed hats they seldom take off. Sometimes they enter pubs, knock the floor with their sticks, and with ritual words ask for a handout to continue their journey. This is not begging!
In the collection is included a lot of amorous affairs - naturally, since these journeymen are young and panting for the girls - sometimes a little bit too dirty for adolescent ears to listen.

My great grandmother used to sing a German lullaby to my grandmother and her sister when they were little. It was only years later that she told them it was about a husband who kills his wife, puts her in a gunny sack and throws her in the river. I would LOVE to find this song if anyone has any idea what song I'm referring to. I can only mumble the first few lines of the song, so I do not know how the German lyrics go... otherwise I would type them here for you (as I know it would be of more help in finding the song).

I'm hoping any of you can help me! Thank you.

I'm looking for a song that has the lyrics "debishna shane, debishna shane, alla godden debishna shane" and was about about a girl with rosy colored cheeks. I'm sorry for any mispelling in the German, any help would be appreciated.

@Edward Rump- looks like the lyrics are in yiddish, possibly a klezmer song.

I'd uess that Edward Rump is thinking of a version of "Bei mir bist du sheyn", based on the klezmer dance tune "Volodya's Farewell to Odessa" and made famous by the Andrews Sisters:

It is interesting to see predecessors (with *no* words in common with the recent versions) of Schnitzelbank (at Nr 24) & of Frau Wirtin (at Nr 42). Perhaps those songs are representatives of patterns that were adapted by the various trades?

She's also schizo.    The song was originally about two girls Hans Leip was interested in. He combined the names.

What is the name of a female singer who had dramatic like , she died I think in the seventies , I think she committed suicide...I was listening to her 2 decades ago because of my friend at that time , I want to listen to her again , one of her songs is (Vinen), if am not wrong in the spell.
Thanks if any help.

hm. Very little information for finding the singer.

Dramatic like? What does that mean?

"died I think in the seventies". So it might have been the late sixties or the early eighties as well? That gives a range of about 20 years ...

"I think she committed suicide" - so it could be natural death or accident or murder as well.

Could the song be "Weinen" (German for "to cry"/"to shed tears")? (But the only song I can find by that title is sung by Adel Tawil, recorded 2013, so that can't be the one).

A few questions for clarity.

1) You are looking for the name of a female singer who died by suicide in the late 1970s or early 1980s. Is that correct?

2) What nationality was she?

3) Did you listen to her on a vinyl record, radio, tape, etc?

4) What language did she sing in?

5) where were you located at the time?

Well... the Swedish singer Zarah Leander recorded a song called "Nur nicht aus Liebe weinen", she was a dramatic singer, and she died (natural causes) in 1981: here she is: here she is Is this who you're looking for? Without more details, that's the best I can do!

In 1950s, I heard a Chinese version of an old German folk song that starts off with "Good-night, roses; good-night lilies; ....." and ends with "Farewell, my hometown" repeating for three times. I would like to know the title and the composer of the original German song. Thank you very much.

Charles, could it be this?

Good Night Garden

In the great green garden
There was a fountain
And a little blue shed
And a painting of-
Madame Monet by the flower bed
And there were three hundred ants on the peony plants
And two little vines
And a cactus with spines
And thriller in a pot
And a greenhouse hot
And a rake and a hoe and an old screened gazebo
And a quiet old gardener who was whispering “grow”
Goodnight garden
Goodnight fence
Goodnight deer jumping over the fence
Goodnight climber
with the jasmine scent
Goodnight birdbath
Goodnight stone path
Goodnight daffodil
And goodnight cranesbill
Goodnight sweet hops
And goodnight carrot tops
Goodnight little seeds
And goodnight weeds
Goodnight arbor
And goodnight trees.
Goodnight flowers.
Goodnight bees.
And goodnight perennials buried in leaves.
Goodnight lilies
Goodnight roses fair,
Good night gardens everywhere.

Hello, cnd,

Thanks for your time and efforts. I was surprised to see "Goodnight Roses" and "Goodnight lilies" in the text. But, NO. Certainly, this "Goodnight Garden" is not what I have been looking for. Again, the one I am looking for must have a title close to "Farewell, My Hometown" in German. Thanks again.

Best regards,
Charles H.
