about

Just as in the original "Die schöne Müllerin" (DSM), the first song introduces the protagonists: the young wanderer and the stream – his meandering guide on a care-free journey through the peaceful woods. In The Mitchells' "Wandering," the alternating eighth notes that begin the piece are the voice of the stream. Simple, steady, but taking turns throughout its path. The vocals and lyrics – taken directly from the original Schubert work – are the voice of the wanderer. And the buoyant, syncopated guitar melody that enters after the first chorus is the happy melody he hums during his travels.

lyrics

Das Wandern ist des Mullers Lust, Das Wandern
Das Wandern ist des Mullers Lust, Das Wandern
Das muB ein schlechter Muller sein, Dem niemals fiel das Wander ein,

Das Wandern
Das Wandern
Das Wandern
Das Wandern

We learned it from the stream, Vom Wasser
Vom Wasser haben wir’s gelernt, from water
It doesn’t rest by day or night, and only thinks of wandering

Das Wasser
Das Wasser
Das Wasser
Das Wasser

Sie Tanzen mit den muntern Reihn, Das Wandern
Und wollen gar noch schneller sein, O Wandern
Herr Meister und Frau Meisterin
LaBt mich in Frieden weiterziehn

Und Wandern
And Wander
Und Wandern
And Wander
