O lieber Künstler sei ermahnt

Language: German (Deutsch)

O lieber Künstler sei ermahnt
Und übe Vorsicht jedenfalls!
Wer in gewissen Kähnen kahnt,
Dem steigt das Wasser bis zum Hals.
Und wenn ein dunkel trübes Licht
Verdächtig aus dem Nebel lugt,
Lustwandle auf der Lienau nicht,
Weil dort der lange Robert spukt!
Dein Säckel wird erobert
Vom langen Robert!

Ô cher artiste, sois prévenu

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

Ô cher artiste, sois prévenu,
Et dans tous les cas montre de la prudence !
Celui qui rame dans certaines barques,
Tombe à l'eau jusqu'au cou.
Et quand une lumière sombre et trouble
Jaillit de manière louche à travers le brouillard,
Ne va pas te promener sur le Lienau,
Qui est hanté par le long Robert !
Ta bourse sera volée
Par le long Robert !
