Thank you, Greg! :) The lyrics had also variations, for instance, Ahlers' guys were singing "Mein kleines Mädel, fürcht' dich nicht vor meinem rauen Angesicht und vor dem rauen Bart...". It could be possible that the beard was "grau", but I doubt that the sailors were too long at the sea, so that they became that old for their families. :D

In Sanssouci, dort wo die alte Mühle steht [Walzerlied]
Composer: Hans Ailbout; Herms Niel
Lyricist: Charly
Publisher: Kawi-Verlag [Karl Wilke], Berlin-Wilmersdorf; W. Ehrler & Co., Leipzig
Opening Line: Lau, lau war die Nacht
One of the earliest known Niel's works, co-composed with his older (and at the time more popular) colleague, Hans Ailbout.

Hans Ailbout and the performers of the below recordings (singer Gerhard Pechner and bandleaders Marek Weber and Paul Godwin) would all become unwanted in Germany a couple of years later, during the Nazi rule, due to their Jewish ancestry.

anybody know the Herms Niel song with the lyrics, there used to be a recording on youtube but I think it's been deleted:

Der Sieg wird unser sein ( "Hell schmettern die Signale") (....Die Stunde hat geschlagen...)

Dear SQ37, thanks very much for trying to identify the lyrics, I really appreciate it, but I believe you got more parts wrong than right. I keep forgetting to try to write down the lyrics myself; but as soon as I do, I'll post them of course. Just a brief note, without even checking, I remember that the part you heard as "Vergiss mir nicht mein Schätzelein, mein Sönnenschein" is in fact "für dich, für dich allein, mein Sonnenschein" (for you only, my sunshine).

Edit: OK, here are the lyrics written by hearing by a German friend of mine and myself. We remained uncertain about the 3rd line (1st strophe), but the rest should be at least 99% correct.


  • Es blüht ein Röselein

    1. Es blüht ein Röselein in meinem Garten,
    so ganz verborgen, einsam und versteckt.
    Als ____ es dort auf irgendjemand warten
    so scheu hält es sein Köpfchen hochgereckt.

    Wenn ich das Röslein seh', wird mir um's Herz so weh,
    dann denke ich beglückt an dich, mein Schätzelein, mein Schätzelein!
    Dann schlägt das Herz mir just wie einst in meiner Brust
    für dich, für dich allein, mein Sonnenschein!

    2. Es blüht ein Röselein in meinem Garten,
    in jedem Sommer auf zur Rosenzeit.
    Nicht einen Augenblick, läßt es mich warten,
    als wüßt' es, daß es mich damit erfreut.

    Wenn ich das Röslein seh'...

    3. Wie dieses Röselein in meinem Garten,
    so steht daheim mein Schatz am Fensterlein
    und schaut hinaus und wird auf mich wohl warten,
    wie dieses kleine rote Röselein.

    Wenn ich das Röslein seh'...
Someone should buy the sheet music... :)

Speaking about Niel's house in Eiche: Is the adress known? I sadly don't remember, if Freitag mentions it in his book.
