Unser Feind ist, grosser Gott
Language: German (Deutsch)
Unser Feind ist, grosser Gott,
Wie der Brite so der Schott.
Manchen hat er unentwegt
Auf das Streckbett hingelegt.
Täglich wird er kecker.
O du Strecker!

Notre ennemi est, grand Dieu
Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)
Notre ennemi est, grand Dieu,
Comme le Britannique, l'Écossais,
Souvent maint homme par lui a été
Sur le chevalet allongé.
Chaque jour il devient plus hardi --
Ô Étireur !
