Chorus:
Bei mir bist du Schon, please let me explain,
"Bei mir bist du Schon," means you are grand!
Bei mir bist du Schon, again I'll explain,
It means you're the fairest in the land!
I could say, "Bella! Bella!" even say "Wunderbar!"
Each language only helps me tell you how grand you are.
I've tried to explain, bei mir bist du Schon,
So, kiss me, and say you understand.
