Struna naladěna,
hochu, toč se v kole,

Pozejtří u Nilu 
za posvátným stolem;
struna již, struna naladěna,
hochu, toč, hochu, toč se kolem!

Reingestimmt die Saiten!
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Czech (Čeština) 
Reingestimmt die Saiten! 
Bursche tanz' im Kreise!
Heute froh, überfroh noch heute,
morgen trüb' nach alter Weise!

Nächsten Tag am Nilstrand,
der den Vätern heilig,
reingestimmt, reingestimmt die Saiten,
in den Tanz, in den Tanz spring eilig!
