Thread Name: Dew Dew? [Du, du liegst mir im Herzen]
Subject: Dew Dew?
God morning fellow cats!
Yesterday, when I played the 'German folk song' 'Dew Dew' from my beginner's accordion book (Herfurth/Meyer) I was pleasantly surprised it turned out to be the tune to a song my Dutch parents used to sing when I was little, namely 'Du, du, liegst mir im Herzen':

Du, du liegst mir im Herzen
du, du liegst mir im Sinn.
Du, du machst mir viel Schmerzen,
weißt nicht wie gut ich dir bin.
Ja, ja, ja, ja, weißt nicht wie gut ich dir bin.

According to Wikipedia it originated in Germany around 1820.
Is there an English version of this song? I used a not very famous search engine (DuckDuckGo - the search engine that doesn't track you) but couldn't find anything for Dew Dew.
