Es ist eine schöne Welt - It is a lovely worldquoted from Mahler's "Songs of a Wayfarer""Ging heut Morgen übers Feld" I went this morning over the field,Dew still hung on the grass;The happy finch spoke to me:"Hey you! Right? Good morning!Hey, right, you,Isn't it a lovely world, lovely world?Chirp! Chirp! Pretty and bright!How the world pleases me!"The bluebells in the field alsoRing happily and cheerfully for meWith their little bells, ring-a-ring, ring-a-ring,Their morning greetings ring out:"Isn't it a lovely world, lovely world?!Ring, ring! Ring, ring! Pretty thing!How the world pleases me! Heiah!"And then in the sunshineThe world began to shimmer,Everything, everything, took onTones and colours in the sunshine!Flowers and birds, big and small!"Good day! Good day!Isn't it a lovely world?Hey, you! Right! Hey, you! Right!Lovely world!"Translation by J.C. Lozos
