Mine!
English source: Jeremy Sams

Millstream stop your rushing sound
Millwheels stop careering round
Can't you hear the heavens resound
All around
With the joy that I have found?
With the joy that I have found?

Let the stars
Whirl and shine
Whizz and fizz like sparkling wine
Let the heav’ns
Intertwine
Let the sun and moon combine

The beloved miller-girl is mine, is mine.
The beloved miller-girl is mine, is mine.
Mine, all mine…

Sunshine
Can't you glow a bit more fervently?
Springtime
Are those all the flowers you own?
Sun and moon and stars above
Can't you simply explode with love?

Must I be forced to sing her praises all alone?
Must I be forced to sing her praises all alone?

Millstream stop your rushing sound
Millwheels stop careering round
Can't you hear the heavens resound
All around
With the joy that I have found?
With the joy that I have found?

Let the stars
Whirl and shine
Whizz and fizz like sparkling wine
Let the heav’ns
Intertwine
Let the sun and moon combine

The beloved miller-girl is mine, is mine.
The beloved miller-girl is mine, is mine.
Mine, all mine…
