I Don't Know Why I Did It

I don't know why I did it
Maybe I was afraid?
But to send my kids away for gold
Was not a fair trade.

I don't know why I did it
But what a fool of me
To think her money was worth
This awful tragedy.

I don't know why I did it
I've lost my wife, now kids.
Maybe they'll return to me
If God, to me, forgives.

I don't know why I did it
Left them stranded in the woods
A wife without love for my children
Does not do me any good.

I don't know why I did it
She's gone now, I'm left bare
I am nothing without them
For my darlings, I do care

Come back to me, my children
I hope you both are safe!
My dear Hansel and Gretel,
To me I hope you're bound!
