    Default Schwarzbraun ist die haselnuss

    1. Schwarzbraun ist die Haselnuß,
    schwarzbraun bin auch ich, ja ich,
    schwarzbraun muß mein Mädel sein
    gerade so wie ich.

    2. Schätzerl hat mir’n Busserl geb’n,
    hat mich sehr gekränkt, sehr gekränkt,
    hab’ ich ihr’s gleich wiedergegeb’n,
    ich nehm’ ja nichts geschenkt!

    3. Schätzerl hat kein Heiratsgut,
    Schätzerl hat kein Geld, kein Geld,
    doch ich geb es nicht heraus,
    für alles in der Welt.

    4. Schwarzbraun ist die Haselnuß,
    schwarzbraun bin auch ich, ja ich,
    wer mein Schätzerl werden will,
    der muß so sein wie ich.

    A bit of a military song. Seems to make fun of commanding officers.

    Black-brown is the hazelnut,
    Black-brown am I too, yes I,
    Black-brown must be my girl,
    Straight like I am.

    The appraising officer had given me a kiss,
    it had made me very sick, very sick,
    had I had done the same to him,
    I would take nothing as a present. (This line was a real ***** to translate.)

    The appraising officer had no dowry,
    The appraising officer had no gold, no gold,
    But I give it nothing from here on out, (Not certain on the meaning here.)
    For everything in the world.

    Black-brown is the hazelnut,
    Black-brown am I too, yes I,
    Whom my appraising officer would really want,
    That must be me.

    Small corrections:

    Black-brown is the hazelnut,
    Black-brown am I too, yes I am,
    Black-brown must be my girl,
    just like me.

    Sweatheart has given me a kiss,
    she has offended me (before)
    so I gave her back a kiss
    (I would take nothing as a present.)
    so its tit for tat (literally meaning)

    Sweatheart had no dowry,
    Sweatheart had no money, no money
    but I wonßt give her away
    nor for anything in the world.

    Black-brown is the hazelnut,
    Black-brown am I too, yes I am,
    who wants to be my sweatheart
    has to be like me

    Ne kleine Korrektur, Rechschriebfehler, Tahira. Schätzerl heißt sweetheart.
    Gott zur Ehr, dem nächsten zur Wehr

    What if they gave a fire and nobody came.
