Es blasen die blauen Husaren

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es blasen die blauen Husaren
und reiten zum Tor hinaus;
da komm' ich, Geliebte, und bringe
dir einen Rosenstrauß.

Das war eine wilde Wirtschaft!
Kriegsvolk und Landesplag'!
Sogar in deinem Herzen
viel Einquartierung lag.

Les hussards bleus claironnent

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

Les hussards bleus claironnent
Et à cheval sortent par la porte;
Alors je viens, ma chérie et t'apporte
Un bouquet de roses.

Ce fut une rude pagaille!
Soldatesque et fléau sur le pays!
Jusque dans ton coeur
Il y eut des cantonnements.
