Mein Lieb ist ein Jäger, und grün ist...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mein Lieb ist ein Jäger, und grün ist sein Kleid,
Und blau ist sein Auge, nur sein Herz ist zu weit.

Mein Lieb ist ein Jäger, trifft immer ins Ziel,
Und Mädchen berückt er, so viel er nur will.

Mein Lieb ist ein Jäger, kennt Wege und Spur,
Zu mir aber kommt er durch die Kirchtüre nur!

Le chasseur

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

Mon amour est un chasseur, et vert est son habit,
Et bleu est son œil, seulement son cœur est trop ouvert.

Mon amour est un chasseur, il atteint toujours son but,
Et il charme les jeunes filles, autant qu'il veut.

Mon amour est un chasseur, il connaît tous les chemins et toutes les traces,
Mais pour moi il viendra seulement par la porte de l'église !
