Esik, esik, esik...

Language: Hungarian (Magyar)

Esik, esik, esik,
Csókeső esik;
Az én ajakamnak
Nagyon jólesik.

Az eső, az eső
Villámlással jár;
A szemed, galambom,
Villámló sugár.

Mennydörög, mennydörög
A hátunk megett;
Szaladok, galambom,
Jön az öreged.

Es regnet, regnet, regnet

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

Es regnet, regnet, regnet,
Jedoch es regnet Küsse! 
O meinen durstigen Lippen
Behagen diese Güsse! 

Inmitten doch des Regens
Nunmehr auch Blitzen funkeln;
Es strahlen deine Augen
Mein Täubchen, so im Dunkeln!

Wie, auch ein Donnerwetter?
Das gilt wohl mir, dem Falter? 
Ich will nun laufen, Täubchen!
Denn, hu!  dort kommt dein Alter!
