Liebeslieder-Walzer (Op.52)

Schlosser auf, und mache Schlösser

Schloßer auf, und mache Schlößer,
Schlößer ohne Zahl!
Denn die bösen Mäuler will ich
Schließen allzumal.

Locksmith, come, make me padlocks

Locksmith, come, make me padlocks,
padlocks without number!
So that once and for all I can shut
their malicious mouths.
Translations by Richard Stokes, author of The Book of Lieder (Faber, 2005)
