Chanson
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): ENG GER
Les myrtilles sont pour la dame
Qui n'est pas là;
La marjolaine est pour mon âme
Tra-la-la!

Le chèvre-feuille est pour la belle
Irrésolue.
Quand cueillerons-nous les airelles
Lanturlu.

Mais laissons pousser sur la tombe,
O folle! O fou!
Le romarin en touffes sombres
Laïtou.

Lied
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the French (Français) 
Die Heidelbeeren für die Dame -
sie ist nicht da;
der Majoran für meine Seele -
tralala!

Das Geißblatt wartet auf die Schöne -
sagt sie wohl zu?
Wann pflücken wir die Preiselbeeren?
Lanturlu!

Doch lass uns auf dem Grabe pflanzen -
o Närrin, Narr!
den Rosmarin in dunklen Büscheln.
Laïtou!
