Blumen-Polka française, Op.316 (Ziehrer, Karl Michael)
Arrangements and Transcriptions
For Soprano or Tenor and Piano
German / English
Charlotte H. Coursen, English text
New York: G. Schirmer, 1885. Plate 4096.
Guessing this is an arrangement of the version for men's chorus of 1880 (the text begins the same way as for that version) - perhaps translation of the voice and piano version published by Doblinger in 1881 without change to the voice or piano parts, perhaps not ; haven't seen yet, can't compare. According to the cover Schirmer also published a version for mezzo or baritone, but in C major.

Text (starts with Lisett! Ach wie nett erst siebzehn Jahr) added in a version for men's chorus in 1880. Much arranged, etc.
RISM seems to raise some questions about either this piece or about the melody in the LoC version above - the piece called Blumen-Polkais attributed to "Anonymous".
