Erika Marschlied On the heath, there blooms a little flower and it's called Erika. Eagerly a hundred thousand little bees, swarm around Erika. For her heart is full of sweetness, a tender scent escapes her blossom-gown. On the heath, there blooms a little flower and it's called Erika.   Back at home, there lives a little maiden and she's called Erika. That girl is my faithful little darling and my joy, Erika! When the heather blooms in a reddish purple, I sing her this song in greeting. On the heath, there blooms a little flower and it's called Erika.   In my room, there also blooms a little flower and it's called Erika. Already In the grey of dawn, as it does at dusk, It looks at me, Erika! And it is as if it spoke aloud: "Are you thinking of your fiance?" Back at home, a maiden weeps for you and she's called Erika.
