Der Reiter

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Reiter spreitet seinen Mantel aus,
Wohl in das grüne Gras:
Da leg dich, du wackres Braunmägdelein,
Mach dir dein Haupt nicht naß,
Wohl in dem grünen Gras!

Was soll ich bei dir sitzen,
Ich hab gar gringes Gut!
Hab zwei schwarzbraune Augen,
Ist all mein Hab und Gut,
Ist all mein Hab und Gut.

Mein Liebster ist hereingestiegen
Wohl durchs Kammerfensterlein,
Ich hatt ihn nicht gerufen,
Konnt ihn nicht halten ein,
Konnt ihn nicht halten ein.

Le cavalier

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

Le cavalier étale son manteau
Soigneusement sur le vert gazon :
« Allonge-toi ici brave fille brune,
Ta tête ne sera pas mouillée,
Tu seras bien sur le vert gazon ! »

« Pourquoi devrais-je m'asseoir près de toi,
Je n'ai que peu de biens !
J'ai deux yeux marrons,
C'est là tout mon avoir et mon bien,
C'est là tout mon avoir et mon bien. »

Mon amant a grimpé pour entrer
Par la petite fenêtre de ma chambre,
Je ne l'ai pas appelé,
Je n'ai pas pu le retenir,
Je n'ai pas pu le retenir.
