Paa andre Strengen II

Language: Norwegian (Nynorsk)

Naar Sola ski'ne og Skya blenkjer,
daa alt, som liver paa Elskhug tenkjer.
Naar Skya blenkjer og Sola skin,
daa dröymer Gjenta um Guten sin.

Um Sola ski'ne og Skya blenkjer,
eg aldri tor' paa mi Gjente tenkje.
Naar Sola ski'ne so blankt og bjart,
daa tek'e Suta i Hjarta hardt.

Sur la deuxième corde II

Language: French (Français) after the Norwegian (Nynorsk)

Quand le soleil brille et qu'étincellent les nuages,
alors tout ce qui vit pense au plaisir d'amour.
Quand le soleil brille et qu'étincellent les nuages,
alors les filles rêvent à leurs galants.

Quand le soleil brille et qu'étincellent les nuages,
je n'ose jamais penser à ma mignonne.
Quand le soleil brille si clair et si pur,
le chagrin étreint mon cœur.
