Ai que linda moça

Language: Portuguese (Português)

Ai que linda moça
sai d'aquela choça,
loira e engraçada
leva arregaçada
a saia encarnada
de chita grosseira

E cantarolando
vai gentil guiando,
seu ditoso gado,
seu rebanho amado
sempre enamorado
da canção fagueira

Tudo são tristezas
tristezas e dor
tudo são tristezas
para o meu amor

Ach welch hübsches Mädchen

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Portuguese (Português)

Ach welch hübsches Mädchen
aus dieser Hütte dort tritt,
blond und niedlich.
Ihr roter Rock
aus grobem Kattun
ist hochgerafft.

Und trällernd
geht die Hübsche
und lenkt ihre glücklichen Tiere,
ihre geliebte Herde,
die immer bezaubert ist
von ihrem lieblichen Gesang.

Alles ist voll Wehmut,
Trauer und Schmerz,
alles voll Wehmut
für meine Liebe.
