Ein kleiner, hübscher Vogel

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Hungarian (Magyar)

Ein kleiner, hübscher Vogel
nahm den Flug
zum Garten hin,
da gab es Obst genug.
Wenn ich ein hübscher,
kleiner Vogel wär,
ich säumte nicht,
ich täte so wie der.

Leimruten-Arglist
lauert an dem Ort;
der arme Vogel
konnte nicht mehr fort.
Wenn ich ein hübscher,
kleiner Vogel wär,
ich säumte doch,
ich täte nicht wie der. 

Der Vogel kam
in eine schöne Hand,
da tat es ihm,
dem Glücklichen, nicht and.
Wenn ich ein hübscher,
kleiner Vogel wär,
ich säumte nicht,
ich täte doch wie der.

Un joli petit oiseau

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Un joli petit oiseau
Prit son envol
Vers le jardin
Bien garni de fruits.
Si j'étais un joli
Petit oiseau,
Je ne traînerais pas,
Je ferais comme lui.

Un perfide gluau
À cet endroit le guette ;
Le pauvre oiseau
Ne peux s'en dégager.
Si j'étais un joli
Petit oiseau,
J'attendrais bien,
Je ne ferais pas comme lui.

L'oiseau vint
Sur une jolie main
Qui ne le captura pas,
Le chanceux.
Si j'étais un joli
Petit oiseau,
Je ne tarderais pas,
Je ferais comme lui.
