Könnte jeder brave Mann (1791) K620


Part of a series or song cycle:

Die Zauberflöte (K620)


Könnte jeder brave Mann

Pamina, Papageno
Könnte jeder barve Mann
Solche Glöckchen finden,
Seine Feinde würden dann
Ohne Mühe schwinden,
Und er lebte ohne sie
In der besten Harmonie!
Nur der Freundschaft Harmonie
Mildert die Beschwerden;
Ohne diese Sympathie
Ist kein Glück auf Erden!

If every good man

Pamina, Papageno
If every good man
Could find little bells like these,
His enemies would then
Fade effortlessly away,
And he would live without them
In perfect harmony!
Only friendship’s harmony
Lightens hardship;
Without this sympathy
There is no happiness on earth!
