Does anyone happen to have a complete text of "Warte, mein Mädel"?

Here it is:
Warte, mein Mädel, dort in der Heimat

1. Nun mach' mir das Herz und den Abschied nicht schwer,
küß' mich und weine nur nicht;
gern blieb' ich bei dir, doch heut' ruft mich das Meer
ruft mir die harte Pflicht!

Warte, mein Mädel, dort in der Heimat,
bald kommt der Tag, wo mein Mund dich wieder küßt!
Glaube, mein Mädel, dort in der Heimat,
daß mein Herz dich niemals vergißt!

Wie der Seemann seinem Schiff vertraut,
so vertraut er seiner Seemannsbraut.
Warte, mein Mädel, dort in der Heimat,
bleib' mir immer treu, Mädel, ahoi!

2. Die Sehnsucht ist groß, doch die Liebe stirbt nie,
wenn wir uns lang' auch nicht sehn!
Ich schau' in die Zukunft mit viel Phantasie,
das macht mein Leben schön!

Warte, mein Mädel...

....Marschlied aus dem UFA-Film....

...there are many of these 'Wilhelm Rose' yellow-woodcut type of songcards...they make for a nice addition to the standard B&W songcards....

As I urged you before, don't be lazy and sloppy. Credit the units properly. Look at how many Luftnachrichten regiments there were: https://www.ww2.dk/ground/ln/lnrgt.html - nearly a hundred! Should the readers guess which one of those you had in mind?

Either credit orchestral performers only or both orchestral and vocal. As it is, your post suggests that the first two recordings are instrumental, since only the last one has vocals credited, and yet they are not. And the last one had a solo singer as well; see this 16-year-old forum post: viewtopic.php?f=81&t=129878#p1135151

I've only been skimming through your posts lately, but when I took a closer look at them tonight, I got a headache. Despite my multiple appeals and your repeated promises, your posts are still full of errors or incomplete and thus potentially misleading info. And I'm really tired of cleaning after you and correcting the products of your laziness. Enough is enough.

You are ruining years of someone else's hard work on keeping this section misinformation-free as much as humanly possible, and do so out of an irrational urge to compile something with least effort possible, feeding an illusion of creating something of value. But badly compiling someone else's info and files, out of a couple of publicly available sources you've been directed to on this very forum and doing so basically for yourself, since no one has asked for it, has zero value. And it needs to stop now.

Edit: Two more posts by a sock puppet account of user heinrich-pg have been removed, pursuant to the forum rules, point 8.
