"Weißt nicht, wie gut ich dir bin" means something like: "(you) don't know how much I care for you." As the experienced listener may have guessed, the narrator is now about to reveal the secret.
Not the most poetic of all folk songs, but dear to the heart of many US citizens of (sentimental) German background, or anti-German (as notably featured in Lifeboat).
