Die Künstler sind die Schöpfer

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Künstler sind die Schöpfer,
Ihr Unglück sind die Schröpfer.
Wer trampelt durch den Künstlerbau
Als wie der Ochs von Lerchenau?
Wer stellt das Netz als Jäger?
Wer ist der Geldsackpfleger?
Wer ist der Zankerreger?
Und der Bazillenträger?
Der biedere, der freundliche,
Der treffliche, der edle Verleger.

Les artistes sont les créateurs

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

Les artistes sont les créateurs,
Les suceurs de sang sont leur malheur.
Qui a trépigné sur un chef d'œuvre
Comme le baron Ochs de Lerchenau ?
Qui est le chasseur qui étend son filet ?
Qui chérit son sac d'or ?
Qui est la cause des querelles ?
Qui est le porteur de germes ?
Le brave, l'amical,
L'excellent, le noble Éditeur !
