Heut' geht
 
 
es an Bord -
 
 
morgen segeln
 
 
wir fort -
 
 
Seemannsbraut
 
 
" ahoi "!

Comments:
My knowledge of the German Language is non-existent. I understand however that a rough translation of this verse is:
Today it is on board -
tomorrow sailing
we continue -
sailor calls
"ahoy"!

The design of this bookmark is the same as cash-bm0458: O, Shenandoah. The German translation though is not the same verse.
