Wer kommt am Sonntagsmorgen

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Wer kommt am Sonntagsmorgen
 Im festlich grünen Kleid?
 Es ist der Sohn des Försters,
 Der um Schön-Röslein freit.

 Und als der Müller fraget,
 Was wohl ihr Herzlein spricht,
 Birgt sie an seinem Busen
 Verschämt ihr Angesicht;

 Umschlingt mit beiden Armen
 Fest den geliebten Mann;
 So schlingt sich an die Eiche
 Der Efeu gläubig an.

Qui vient, un dimanche matin

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

Basse solo :
 Qui vient, un dimanche matin,
 Dans un manteau vert de fête ?
 C'est le fils du forestier,
 Qui vient demander la main de la belle petite rose.

 Et comme le meunier lui demande
 Ce que son petit cœur lui dit,
 Elle cache sur son sein
 Son visage timidement.

 Avec ses deux bras elle embrasse
 Bien fort l'homme aimé.
 Ainsi sur le chêne s'enroule
 Fidèlement le lierre.
