batwingdreams:

The translation reads (loosely, there are a few of them):

My Parents’ Grave

And if you ask me, so I tell you

It is not far, not far from here

The most beautiful place I have on earth

Is the grassy bank on my parents’ grave.”

This is a snippet of lyrics from the song “Das Elterngrab”, which was apparently very popular around the turn of the 20th century, both in Germany and the Netherlands.
