Lied der Chispa

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Spanish (Español)

Chispa (Mezzosopran) : 
 Es war ein Bruder Liederlich
 In Andalusiens Landen,
 Der sich auf Hau'n und Degenstich
 Wie keiner sonst verstanden.
 Halloh, halloh, mal so.

Soldaten :
 Halloh, halloh, mal so.

Chispa :
 In einem Spielhaus fand er dann
 Zur Nacht was ihn erboste,
 Chinilla nicht, sein Liebchen an,
 Wie sie mit Carlo koste
 [Hallo, hallo]1, mal so.

Soldaten :
 Hallo, hallo, mal so.

Chispa :
 Der Carlo war ein Wetterstrahl,
 Aus Wolkenschacht geboren,
 Er sprang vom Stuhl und schlug den Stahl
 Dem Kömmling um die Ohren.
 Hallo, hallo, mal so.

Soldaten :
 Hallo, hallo, mal so.

Chant de Chispa

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

Chispa (Mezzosoprano) :
 Il y avait un loustic dévergondé
 Dans le pays d'Andalousie,
 Qui pour cogner et donner des coups d'épée s'y
 Entendait mieux que quiconque.
 Hello, hello, c'était ainsi.

Soldats :
 Hello, hello, c'était ainsi.

Chispa :
 Dans une maison de jeux il découvrit
 Une nuit quelque chose qui le mit en rage,
 N'était-ce pas Chinilla, sa bien-aimée,
 Comme elle roucoulait avec Carlo.
Hello, hello, c'était ainsi.

Soldats :
 Hello, hello, c'était ainsi.

Chispa :
 Carlo était comme un éclair
 Né d'un banc de nuages,
 Il bondit de son siège et frappa de son épée
 L'intrus sur les oreilles.
 Hello, hello, c'était ainsi.

Soldats :
 Hello, hello, c'était ainsi.
