Den grünen Zeigern

Language: German (Deutsch)

Den grünen Zeigern,
Den roten Wangen,
Den lustigen Geigern
Bin ich nachgegangen
Von Schenk' zu Schenk',
Solang' ich denk'.

Am Tschako jetz trag' ich 
Die grünen Äste,
Rote Wangen, die schlag' ich
Den Feinden auf's Beste,
Kanonengebrumm
Musiziert herum.

Les pancartes vertes

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

Les pancartes vertes,
Les joues rouges,
Les violonistes joyeux
Je les suivais
De taverne en taverne
Depuis aussi longtemps que je me souviens.

Comme shako je porte maintenant
Des branches vertes,
Les joues rouges, je les bats
Aux ennemis du mieux que je peux,
Le grondement du canon
Est la musique qui nous entoure.
