Gdybym ja była słoneczkiem na niebie,
Nie świeciłabym jak tylko dla ciebie.
Ani na wody, 
ani na lasy, 
ale po wszystkie
Czasy pod twym okienkiem i tylko dla ciebie
Gdybym w słoneczko mogła zmienić siebie.

Gdybym ja była ptaszkiem z tego gaju,
Nie śpiewałabym w żadnym obcym kraju.
Ani na wody, 
ani na lasy, 
ale po wsystkie
Czasy pod twym okienkiem i tylko dla ciebie
Czemuż nie mogę w ptaszka zmienić siebie.

Mädchens Wunsch

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Polish (Polski)

Könnt ich am Himmel 
schweben als Sonne
wollt' ich dir allein 
strahlen zur Wonne
Nicht auf die Auen
wollte ich schauen

...


Wär' ich ein Vög'lein, 
Vög'lein im Haine,
säng' die Lieder mein 
dir nur alleine.
Blüm'lein die süßen
wollt' ich nicht grüßen.
