Genug des Frühlings und der Lust

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Genug des Frühlings und der Lust!
 Ein bessres Lied stimmt an, ein Lied, 
 Das eines Mannes Brust mit Schauer füllen kann.
 Eine Sage singt aus der alten Zeit, wo nur das Schwert entschied,
 Wo Blut vergolten ward mit Blut, 
 das ist mir das schönste Lied.

 Wohl hört ich solche blut'ge Mähr,
 aus Meister Ludwigs Mund, als wir durch Schwaben zogen her,
 Ihr wollt! ich thu' sie kund:

Assez de printemps et de joie

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

Le roi
 Assez de printemps et de joie !
 Entonne un meilleur chant, un chant
 Qui peut remplir la poitrine d'un homme de frissons.
 Une légende chante l'ancien temps quand seulement l'épée décidait
 Où le sang est remboursé par le sang,
 C'est pour moi le plus beau chant.

Le harpiste
 Eh bien, j'entends de tels contes sanglants
 De la bouche de maître Ludwig, quand à travers la Souabe on l'a traîné,
 Vous le voulez ! je le connais :
