O wunderbare harmonie,

er zählt Dukaten gern,
und machet den große Herrn,
auch das ist ihr Gebrauch.

L'harmonie dans le mariage
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ô merveilleuse harmonie,
Ce qu'il veut, elle le veut aussi.
Il boit bien, elle aussi,
Il joue bien, elle aussi,
Il compte les ducats âprement,
Et jouer les grands seigneurs,
C'est ce qu'elle fait aussi,
Ô merveilleuse harmonie !
