Sah ein Mädchen ein Röslein stehen
Blühte dort in lichten Höhen
Sprach sie ihren Liebsten an
Ob er es ihr steigen kann

from Rammstein – Rosenrot Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Translation:
“A girl saw a little rose
It bloomed there in bright heights
She asked her sweetheart
if he could fetch it for her”

The song was inspired by the poem Heidenröslein by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
This isn’t the first song from Rammstein that contains elements from one of Johann’s poems, the other being Erlkönig which inspired the track Dalai Lama from their 2004 release Reise, Reise.
