Und schläfst du, mein Mädchen

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

Und schläfst du, mein Mädchen,
Auf, öffne du mir;
Denn die Stund' ist gekommen,
Da wir wandern von hier.

Und bist ohne Sohlen,
Leg' keine dir an;
Durch reisende Wasser
Geht unsere Bahn.

Durch die tief tiefen Wasser
Des Guadalquivir;
Denn die Stund' ist gekommen,
Da wir wandern von hier.1


Translation(s): DUT ENG POR

And are you sleeping, my girl?

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

And are you sleeping, my girl?
Up! Open the door for me,
For the hour has come,
When we get away from here.

And you are without shoes,
Put nothing on,
Through raging water
Goes our path.

Through the deep, deep water
Of the Guadalquivir;
For the hour has come,
When we get away from here.
