Ach, und du mein kühles Wasser!

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Serbian (Српски)

Ach, und du mein kühles Wasser!
Ach, und du mein rotes Röslein!
Was erblühst du mir so frühe?
Hab' ja nicht, für wen dich pflücken!

Pflück' ich dich für meine Mutter?
Keine Mutter hab' ich Waise!
Pflück' ich dich für meine Schwester?
Ei doch, längst vermählet ist sie!

Pflück' ich dich für meinen Bruder?
Ist gezogen in die Feldschlacht!
Pflück' ich dich für den Geliebten?
Fern, ach, weilet der Geliebte!
Jenseit dreier grünen Berge,
Jenseit dreier kühlen Wasser!

Lied van een meisje

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Ach, en jij mijn koel, fris water!
Ach, en jij mijn rode roosje!
Waarom ga je nu al bloeien?
‘ k Heb geen mens om j’ aan te geven!
 
Zal ‘k je plukken voor mijn moeder?
Ik ben een wees, ik heb geen moeder!
Zal ‘k je plukken voor mijn zuster?
Ach, die is al lang getrouwd toch!
 
Zal ‘k je plukken voor mijn broeder?
Hij ’s vertrokken om te vechten!
Pluk ik je dan voor mijn minnaar?
Ver weg, ach, is mijn beminde!
Over wel drie groene bergen,
Over wel drie koele waat’ ren!
