Wooden Heart
Elvis Presley (Children's) Lyrics


Can't you see
I love you
Please don't break my heart in two
That's not hard to do
Cause I don't have a wooden heart
And if you say goodbye
Then I know that I would cry
Maybe I would die
Cause I don't have a wooden heart
There's no strings upon this love of mine
It was always you from the start
Treat me nice
Treat me good
Treat me like you really should
Cause I'm not made of wood
And I don't have a wooden heart

Muss i denn, muss i denn
Zum stadtele hinaus
Stadtele hinaus
Und du, mein schat, bleibst hier?

Muss i denn, muss i denn
Zum stadtele hinaus
Stadtele hinaus
Und du, mein schat, bleibst hier?

There's no strings upon this love of mine
It was always you from the start
Sei mir gut
Sei mir gut
Sei mir wie du wirklich sollst
Wie du wirklich sollst
Cause I don't have a wooden heart

CORAÇÃO DE MADEIRA

Você não vê
Que eu te amo?
Por favor, não parta o meu coração em dois
Isso não é difícil de fazer
Porque eu não tenho um coração de madeira
E se você dizer adeus
Então eu sei que vou chorar
Talvez eu vá morrer
Porque eu não tenho um coração de madeira
Não há restrições nesse meu amor
E sempre foi você, desde o começo
Trate-me amavelmente
Trate-me bem
Trate-me como você acha que deve
Porque eu não sou feito de madeira
E não tenho um coração de madeira

Devo eu então, devo eu então
sair da cidadezinha
sair da cidadezinha
E você, minha querida, fica aqui?

Não há restrições nesse meu amor
E sempre foi você, desde o começo
Trate-me bem
Trate-me bem
Trate-me como você deve
Como você deve
Porque eu não tenho um coração de madeira

LYRICS =]

Can't you see I love you
Please don't break my heart in two
That's not hard to do
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart
And if you say goodbye
Then I know that I would cry
Maybe I would die
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart

There's no strings upon this love of mine
It was always you from the start
Treat me nice
Treat me good
Treat me like you really should
'Cause I'm not made of wood
And I don't have a wooden heart

Muss i denn, muss i denn
Zum Stadtele hinaus
Stadtele hinaus
Und du, mein schat, bleibst hier? (2)

There's no strings upon this love of mine
It was always you from the start
Sei mir gut
Sei mir gut
Sei mir wie du wirklich sollst
Wie du wirklich sollst
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart

@April Showers in high German it would be:

Ich muss also das Städtchen (diminutive form of the word 'Stadt'/city) verlassen,
[So I need to leave the city]

Und du mein Schatz bleibst hier.
[and you stay here, my love.]

Sei mir gut, sei mir gut, sei mir wie du wirklich sollst
[This is hard to translate. The verse is a request to the lover to be well-disposed towards the person who is speaking. So maybe "think highly of me like you really should"]

There's even an article on wikipedia for the original song in english: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muss_i_denn

Can't you see I love you?
Please don't break my heart in two
That's not hard to do
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart
And if you say goodbye
Then I know that I would cry
Maybe I would die
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart
There's no strings upon this love of mine
It was always you from the start
Treat me nice, treat me good
Treat me like you really should
'Cause I'm not made of wood
And I don't have a wooden heart
Muß i' denn, muß i' denn
Zum Städtele hinaus
Städtele hinaus
Und du mein Shatz bleibst hier
Muß i' denn, muß i' denn
Zum Städtele hinaus
Städtele hinaus
Und du mein Shatz bleibst hier
There's no strings upon this love of mine
It was always you from the start
Sei mir gut, sei mir gut
Sei mir wie
Wie du
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart

@JESUS1st my Law is Love so sweet to have these memories

JESUS1st my Law is Love

Oh my dear God... guys iʼm close at Tears because we basically share the same Memory!! :,) When i was a little girl my dad used to sing this with me during road trips. Next to that he told me a lot about ELVIS & his career, and how young he was when singing that song which i found very cool as a child.. i remember that.
But i was quite young, and my parents often played it as a lullaby in the car by the fact how calming it is.🥺❤️❤️
What a bitter sweet memory.
