Die Schwälble ziehet fort, ziehet fort

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Schwälble ziehet fort, ziehet fort,
Weit an en andre Ort;
Und i sitz' do in Traurigkeit,
Es isch a böse, schwere Zeit.

Könnt' i no fort durch d' Welt, fort durch d' Welt,
Weil mir's hie gar net, gar net g'fällt!
O Schwälble, komm, i bitt', i bitt'!
Zeig mir de Weg und nimm mi mit!


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE

Chant populaire

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

La petite hirondelle s'envole au loin,
Loin vers un autre endroit ;
Et je suis assise ici dans la tristesse,
C'est une période pénible et pesante.

Si seulement je pouvais aller de l'avant à travers le monde,
Car ici ce ,'est pas bien du tout pour moi !
Ô petite hirondelle, viens, je t'en prie !
Montre-moi le chemin et amène-moi avec toi !
