Available translation(s): CAT
Darf des Falken Schwinge Tatrahoh'n umrauschen,
wird das Felsennest nicht er mit dem Käfig tauschen.
Kann das wilde Fohlen jagen durch die Heide,
wird's an Zaum und Zügel finden keine Freude.
Hat Natur Zigeuner etwas dir gegeben,
ja zur Freiheit schuf sie mir das ganze Leben.

Si les ales del falcó poden brunzir...
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Si les ales del falcó poden brunzir entorn del mont Tatra,
ell no canviaria pas el seu niu a les roques per una gàbia.
Si el poltre salvatge pot córrer lliure per l'ermàs,
no li agradaria pas portar brida i regnes.
A tu, gitano, la Natura t'ha donat quelcom,
sí, et va crear per ser lliure tota la vida.
