To the Rhine, to the Rhine! go not to the Rhine! My son, I counsel thee well; For there life is too sweet and too fine, and every breath is a spell.
The nixie calls to thee out of the flood; and if thou her smiles shouldst see, And the Lorelei, with her pale cold lips, then 'tis all over with thee:
For bewitched and delighted, yet seized with fear, Thy home is forgotten and mourners weep here.
