When I asked you, girl: Why go scaling peaks? You just pressed ahead, your face battle-worn From the plane they resemble giant eagle beaks And you laughed at that, and took me along And you then became so warm and I - so worry-free Mountain-climbing girl, alpine angel mine When from abyss you first time rescued me You kept smiling, while pulling on the line That night, remembering mistakes I made When I praised your cooking at the fireside You rapped my head with a bottle of Gatorade I just winced in pain and proclaimed with pride: Oh, how warm you are and Iím so worry-free Mountain-climbing girl, alpine angel mine Every time from some hole you extracted me I enjoyed your curses like exquisite wine! And thereafter for each peak we climbed, Why were you doubting and not trusting me? You joyfully belayed me every single time Mountain-climbing girl and my queen of scree Oh, how cold and distant you turned out to be Mountain-climbing girl, alpine angel mine Whenever I screwed up and you rescued me You kept teaching me and I improved with time After you I trudge, running out of steam You are just a few measly feet ahead "Thatís enough, my love!" at the top Iíll scream But, I slip and plunge, saying this instead: Oh, how warm you are, and Iím so worry-free Mountain-climbing girl, alpine angel mine The same climbing rope now ties you to me As alpine angels we both became divine
