Die Berge sind spitz
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
Die Berge sind spitz
Und die Berge sind kalt,
Mein Schatz steigt zu Berge
Und ich in den Wald.

Da tröpfelt das Laub
Von Regen und Thau,
Ob die Augen da tröpfeln,
Wer sieht es genau?

Les montagnes sont pointues
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Les montagnes sont pointues
Et les montagnes sont froides.
Ma bien-aimée grimpe sur la montagne
Et je vais dans la forêt.

Les feuilles versent des gouttes
De pluie et de rosée.
Si les yeux versent des gouttes,
Qui peut le voir clairement ?
