Das Wandern ist des Müllers Lust

Language: German (Deutsch)

Das Wandern ist des Müllers Lust,
Das Wandern!
Das muß ein schlechter Müller sein,
Dem niemals fiel das Wandern ein,
Das Wandern.

Vom Wasser haben wir's gelernt,
Vom Wasser!
Das hat nicht Rast bei Tag und Nacht,
Ist stets auf Wanderschaft bedacht,
Das Wasser.

Das sehn wir auch den Rädern ab,
Den Rädern!
Die gar nicht gerne stille stehn,
Die sich mein Tag nicht müde [drehn]1,
Die Räder.

Die Steine selbst, so schwer sie sind,
Die Steine!
Sie tanzen mit den muntern Reihn
Und wollen gar noch schneller sein,
Die Steine.

O Wandern, Wandern, meine Lust,
O Wandern!
Herr Meister und Frau Meisterin,
Laßt mich in Frieden weiterziehn
Und wandern.

Andare in giro

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

 Wandern, andare in giro, è la passione del mugnaio,
 Wandern!
 Dev'essere proprio un pessimo mugnaio,
 quello a cui non piace andare in giro.
 Wandern!

 Dall'acqua lo abbiamo imparato,
 dall'acqua!
 che non ha mai riposo giorno e notte,
 sempre intenta al suo perpetuo viaggio,
 l'acqua.

 Lo vediamo anche dalle ruote, 
 le ruote
 che non vogliono mai stare ferme,
 e non c'è giorno che non lavorino,
 le ruote.

 Le macine, pur così pesanti, 
 le macine
 danzano nell'allegro girotondo,
 e vorrebbero girare ancora più veloci,
 le macine.

 O Wandern, mia passione,
 andare in giro!
 Signor padrone e signora padrona,
 lasciatemi andare sereno in giro.
 Wandern!
