Spreek, meisje, al te lief kind
dat in mijn toch zo koele borst
met haar blik heeft geslingerd
deze wild-gloeiende gevoelens!

Wil je niet je hart verzachten,
wil je, supervroom vrouwmens,
zonder intieme vreugde blijven
of wil je dat ik bij je kom?

Zonder intieme vreugde blijven -- 
zo bitter wil ik niet boeten.
kom toch, jij zwart oog;
kom, wanneer de sterren groeten.

De groene hoprank
zij kronkelt over de grond;
Het jonge, mooie meisje,
hoe treurig is zij gestemd!

Hoor eens, groene rank,
waarom klim je niet hemelwaarts?
En hoor eens, mooi meisje,
waarom is je hart zo zwaar?

Hoe zou de rank ook klimmen
die geen stok heeft tot steun;
Hoe zou het meisje vrolijk zijn
wanneer haar liefste ver weg is?

Een klein, vrolijk vogeltje
vloog weg
naar de tuin,
daar was genoeg fruit.
Als ik een vrolijk 
vogeltje was,
ik aarzelde niet,
maar deed zoals hij.

De arglistige lijmstok
loert op die plek;
de arme vogel
kon niet meer weg.
Als ik een vrolijk 
vogeltje was,
ik zou wel aarzelen,
ik deed niet zoals hij.

De vogel kwam
in een mooie hand.
Daar overkwam hem,
geluksvogel, geen kwaad.
Als ik een vrolijk vogeltje was, 
ik aarzelde niet, 
ik deed toch zoals hij.

Mooi ommuurd
was het voorheen
met mijn leven,
met mijn liefde;
door een muur,
ja, door tien muren heen
zag mij het oog
van mijn vriend.
Maar nu, o wee,
ook al sta ik die koele
kerel vlak voor zijn oog,
het ontgaat zijn oog,
en zijn hart.

Wanneer jouw oog mij zo zacht

vervliegt elk spoor van droefheid
die grijs om me heen hangt.

Van deze liefde de mooie gloed,
laat die niet verstuiven;
nooit zal een ander zo trouw
van je houden als ik.

Aan het strand van de Donau
daar staat een huis,
daar kijkt een blozend
jong meisje uit.

Dat meisje is wel 
heel goed beschermd;
tien ijzeren grendels
zijn voor de deur gelegd.

Tien ijzeren grendels,
dat is een grap,
die breek ik alsof ze
maar van glas waren.
