Wie komm' ich denn zur Tür herein

Language: German (Deutsch)

Er:
 Wie komm' ich denn zur Tür herein,
 sag' du, mein Liebchen, sag'?

Sie:
 Nimm den Ring und zieh' die Klink,
 dann meint die Mutt'r es wär' der Wind,
 komm' du, mein Liebchen komm'!

Er:
 Wie komm' ich denn vorbei dem Hund?
 sag' du, mein Liebchen, sag'?

Sie:
 Gib dem Hund ein gutes Wort,
 dann geht er wied'r an seinen Ort,
 komm' du, mein Liebchen komm'!

Er:
 Wie komm' ich denn vorbei dem Feu'r,
 sag' du, mein Liebchen, sag'?

Sie:
 Schütt ein bißchen Wasser drein,
 dann meint die Mutt'r es regnet 'rein,
 komm' du, mein Liebchen komm'!

Er:
 Wie komm' ich denn die Trepp' hinauf,
 sag' du, mein Liebchen, sag'?

Sie:
 Nimm die Schuh' nur in die Hand
 und schleich' dich leis' entlang der Wand,
 komm' du, mein Liebchen komm'!

Hoe kom ik straks de huisdeur door?

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

Hij:
 Hoe kom ik straks de huisdeur door?
 Zeg jij 't me, liefje, graag!
 
Zij:
 Neem de ring, trek aan de klink,
 Dan meent mijn moeder, 't was de wind,
 Kom gauw, mijn liefje, kom!
 
Hij: 
 Hoe kom ik dan voorbij de hond?
 Zeg jij 't me, liefje, graag!
 
Zij:
 Geef de hond een vriend'lijk woord,
 Dan kun je langs hem ongestoord,
 Kom gauw, mijn liefje, kom!
 
Hij:
 Hoe kom ik dan voorbij het vuur?
 Zeg jij 't me, liefje, graag!
 
Zij:
 Giet 'r een beetje water op,
 Dan denkt mijn moeder: een regendrop,
 Kom gauw, mijn liefje, kom!
 
Hij:
 Hoe kom ik dan de trap nog op?
 Zeg jij 't me, liefje, graag!
 
Zij:
 Neem je schoenen in de hand
 En sluip heel zachtjes langs de wand
 Kom gauw, mijn liefje, kom!
