Burgen mit hohen

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Burgen mit hohen
 Mauern und Zinnen,
 Mädchen mit stolzen
 Höhnenden Sinnen
 Möcht' ich gewinnen!
 Kühn ist das Mühen,
 Herrlich der Lohn!

 Und die Trompete
 Lassen wir werben,
 Wie zu der Freude,
 So zum Verderben.
 [Das ist ein Stürmen!]1
 Das ist ein Leben!

 Mädchen und Burgen
 Müssen sich geben.
 Kühn ist das Mühen,
 Herrlich der Lohn!
 Und die Soldaten
 Ziehen davon.

Castelli con alte

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

Castelli con alte
mura merlate,
ragazze sprezzanti
e ostinate
Ah, conquistarle!
Ardua l'impresa,
magnifico il premio!

Le nostre trombe,
lasciate suonare,
per la vittoria
per la disfatta.
Questa è una lotta!
Questa è la vita!

Castelli e ragazze
portare alla resa,
magnifico il premio, 
ardua l'impresa!
E dopo i soldati
prendon congedo.
