Bäumlein im Winde

Language: German (Deutsch)

Steht Bäumlein im Winde,
Wind bläst hinein,
bläst grüne Blätter
ins Bäumelein!

Treibt Bäumlein Blumen,
blau wie die Luft,
Wind weht durch Blumen,
zerstreut den Duft.

Steht Bäumlein im Winde,
Wind bläst hinein,
bläst gelbe Blätter
vom Bäumelein!

Little tree in the wind

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

When a little tree stands in the wind,
The wind blows into it,
Blows green leaves
Into the little tree!
When the little tree sprouts flowers,
As blue as the breeze,
The wind blows through the flowers,
Scattering the scent.
When a little tree stands in the wind,
The wind blows into it,
Blows yellow leaves
Off the little tree!
