Paa trie Strengen III

Language: Norwegian (Nynorsk)

Signe heiter Gjenta mi, den greiaste som eg fann.
Heil so vere du ljose Viv, min Hugen so fast til deg rann.
Signe, Signe, Vive mitt, ho er so lett paa Fote.
Det gjere so vondt i Hjarta mitt, er du ikkje gla til Mote.

Signe, Signe, Vive mitt: no maa du ikkje graate,
snart eg kjem'e blir Vaaren go, daa skal du leike og laate.
Daa skal du laate paa Langelur og ljoe alt det du kann,
og daa skal du vera mitt eige Viv, for Hugen so fast til deg rann.

Sur la troisième corde III

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

Ma chérie s’appelle Signe, la plus délicate que je connaisse,
Sois saluée lumineuse femme, vers qui vole mon cœur.
Signe, Signe, ma femme, au pied si léger.
J’aurais le cœur déchiré si tu n’étais pas heureuse.

Signe, Signe, ma femme, plus jamais tu ne dois être triste,
Bientôt je reviendrai, ce sera le printemps, alors tu joueras.
Alors tu joueras du cor et souffleras autant que tu peux,
et tu deviendras mon épouse pour ce cœur qui vole vers toi.
