Ein Jüngling liebt ein Mädchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein Jüngling liebt ein [Mädchen,]1
Die hat einen andern erwählt;
Der andre liebt eine andre,
Und hat sich mit dieser vermählt.

Das Mädchen [heiratet]2 aus Ärger
Den ersten besten Mann,
Der ihr in den Weg gelaufen;
Der Jüngling ist übel dran.

Es ist eine alte Geschichte,
Doch bleibt sie immer neu;
Und wem sie [just]3 passieret,
Dem bricht das Herz entzwei.

Een jongen houdt van 'n meisje

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Een jongen houdt van 'n meisje,
Maar zij koos een andere vent;
Die vent houdt van een and're
En deelt nu met háár dus de tent.
 
Het meisje neemt dan uit kwaadheid
De eerste de beste man
Die bij haar aan komt lopen;
De kerel krijgt spijt daarvan.
 
Het is een oude historie,
Toch keert zij altijd weer;
En wie het zelf net meemaakt,
Die zit gebroken neer.
