Blauäugig

Blauäugig
Ich weiß nicht was soll es bedeuten
Daß ich blauäugig bin.
Lügt mir der Spiegel an, oder
Hats einen weiteren Sinn?

More or less literally, “I don’t know what it’s supposed to mean that I’m blue-eyed. Is the mirror lying to me, or is there a second meaning?” “Blue-eyed” in German can also mean naive, sort of like “starry-eyed”.

This plays off the first stanza of Heinrich Heine’s famous poem Die Lorelei, here translated by A.Z. Foreman.
