La sierra es alta

Language: Spanish (Español)

La sierra es alta
y áspera de subir:
los caños corren agua
y dan en el torongil.

Madre, la mi madre,
del cuerpo atan garrido:
por aquella sierra
en su lomo erguido,
iba una mañana
el mi lindo amigo:
llaméle con mi toca
y con mis dedos cinco,
los caños corren agua
y dan en el torongil.

Hoch, hoch sind die Berge

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Spanish (Español)

Hoch, hoch sind die Berge,
Und steil ist ihr Pfad;
Die Brunnen sprüh'n Wasser
Und rieseln ins Kraut.

O Mutter, o Mutter,
[Schön]1 Mütterlein du!
Dort, dort in die Berge,
Mit den Gipfeln so stolz
Da ging eines Morgens
Mein süßester Freund.
Wohl rief ich zurück ihn
Mit Zeichen und Wort,
Wohl winkt' ich mit allen
Fünf Fingern zurück --
[Die Brunnen sprüh'n Wasser
Und rieseln ins Kraut.]2
