Eins Zwei Drei Vier - Ad infinitum wiederholen

Now I know why?

1. Argonnerwald, um Mitternacht,
Ein Pionier steht auf der Wacht.
|: Ein Sternlein hoch am Himmel stand,;
Bringt ihm 'nen Gruß aus fernem Heimatland.:[1]|

2. Und mit dem Spaten in der Hand
Er vorne in der Sappe stand.
|: Mit Sehnsucht denkt er an sein Lieb:
Ob er sie wohl noch einmal wiedersieht? :|

3. Und donnernd dröhnt die Artill'rie.
Wir stehen vor der Infantrie.
|: Granaten schlagen bei uns ein,
Der Franzmann will in unsere Stellung 'rein. :|

4. Er frug nicht warum und nicht wie,
Tat seine Pflicht wie alle sie.
|: In keinem Liede ward´s gehört,
Ob er geblieben oder heimgekehrt. :|

5. Bedroht der Feind uns noch so sehr,
Wir Deutsche fürchten ihn nicht mehr.
|: Und ob er auch so stark mag sein,
In unsere Stellung kommt er doch nicht 'rein. :|

6. Der Sturm bricht los, die Mine kracht,
Der Pionier gleich vorwärts macht.
|: Bis an den Feind macht er sich ran
Und zündet dann die Handgranate an. :|

7. Die Infantrie steht auf der Wacht,
Bis daß die Handgranate kracht,
|: Geht dann mit Sturm bis an den Feind,
Mit Hurra nimmt sie dann die Stellung ein. :|

8. Der Franzmann ruft: Pardon Monsieur!
Hebt beide Hände in die Höh,
|: Er fleht uns dann um Gnade an,
Die wir als Deutsche ihm gewähren dann. :|

9. Bei diesem Sturm viel Blut auch floß,
Manch junges Leben hat's gekost´.
|: Wir Deutsche aber halten stand,
Für das geliebte, teure Vaterland. :|

10. Argonnerwald, Argonnerwald,
Ein stiller Friedhof wirst du bald!
|: In deiner kühlen Erde ruht
So manches tapfere Soldatenblut. :|

11. Und komm' ich einst zur Himmelstür,
Ein Engel Gottes steht dafür:
|: Argonnerkämpfer, tritt herein,
Hier soll für dich der ew'ge Friede sein. :|

12. Du Pionier um Mitternacht,
Heut' steht ganz Deutschland auf der Wacht.
|: In Treue fest, im Wollen rein,
Als eine neue starke Wacht am Rhein ! :|





1. Argonnerwald, at midnight,

A pioneer is on the watch.

|: A star stood high in the sky;

Bring him a greeting from a distant homeland.: [1] |

2. And with the spade in his hand

He stood in front of the sap.

|: With longing he thinks of his love:

Will he see her again? : |

3. And thunderously the Artill'rie roars.

We are facing infantry.

|: Grenades strike us,

Franzmann wants to get into our position. : |

4. He did not ask why and how

Did his duty like all of them.

|: In no song was it heard

Whether he stayed or returned home. : |

5. Does the enemy still threaten us so much?

We Germans no longer fear him.

|: And he likes to be so strong

He does not get into our position. : |

6. The storm breaks, the mine crashes,

The pioneer makes straight forward.

|: He gets up to the enemy

And then fire the hand grenade. : |

7. The Infantry is on the watch,

Until the hand grenade crashes,

|: Then go with the storm to the enemy,

With Hurray, she then takes the position. : |

8. The Franzmann calls: Pardon Monsieur!

Raise both hands in the air,

|: He then begs for mercy,

We as Germans then grant it to him. : |

9. A lot of blood also flowed in this storm,

Many a young life has cost '.

|: We Germans stand up,

For the beloved, expensive fatherland. : |

10. Argonnerwald, Argonnerwald,

You will soon be a silent cemetery!

|: Resting in your cool earth

So many brave soldiers blood. : |

11. And once I come to heaven's door,

An angel of God stands for:

|: Argonner fighter, enter,

Here shall be eternal peace for you. : |

12. You pioneer at midnight,

Today 'Germany is on the watch.

|: Firm in faith, pure in want,

As a new strong guard on the Rhine! : |

Forest of Argonne

The Forest of Argonne (is a long strip of mountainous and wild woodland in northeastern France, approximately 200 km (120 mi) east of Paris. In 1792, Charles François Dumouriez outmaneuvered the invading forces of the Duke of Brunswick in the forest before the Battle of Valmy.

Forest of Argonne in 1915

Forest of Argonne in a valley near Chatel-Chéhéry, France, where Sgt. Henry Johnson, known after his heroic battle as the Black Death, and Sgt. Alvin C. York fought in World War I

During World War I, the forest again became the site of intense military action. Bitter fighting between German and Allied units took place here in fall and winter 1914, summer 1915, and fall 1918.

During the Meuse–Argonne offensive (1918), several United States Army soldiers earned the Medal of Honor there, including Colonel Nelson Miles Holderman, Major Charles White Whittlesey, Sergeant Alvin C. York, Corporal Harold W. Roberts and William Henry Johnson (a.k.a. "Black Death"), most of them part of the "Lost Battalion". The World War I Montfaucon American Monument consists of a large granite Doric column surmounted by a statue symbolic of Liberty. The monument is located 32 kilometres (20 mi) northwest of Verdun, not far from the Meuse–Argonne American Cemetery and Memorial.
