Wild sauset über die Steppe fort,
Galopp! Galopp!
Ein schnelles muntres Pferd sieh' dort!
Hopp, hopp!
Der Reiter lenkt es fest und stramm,
Galopp! Galopp!
wohl hin zum Liebchen drüben beim andern Stamm.

Von Ferne sieht er des Lagers Schein,
hell, hell! hell, hell!
Das Pferd, es rast über Stock und Stein,
schnell, schnell! schnell, schnell!
Der Steppensohn wie ein Pfeil geschwind,
schnell schnell, schnell schnell.
in die Arme fliegt seinem schönen Kind.

Note: I. Levaillant score indicates author as "Dr. J. L."
