Brennessel steht am Wegesrand
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FIN FRE ITA
Brennessel steht am Wegesrand,
Neider und Feinde hab' ich in Stadt und Land.
Neidet, haßt, verleumdet, 
doch das bringt mir keine Not,
Wenn mir nur mein süßes Liebchen 
treu bleibt bis zum Tod.

Brandnetels staan in berm en rand
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Brandnetels staan in berm en rand,
Brommers en bijters heb ik in stad en land.
Afgunst, haat en laster,
Maar dat brengt mij niet in nood,
Als mij maar mijn zoete liefje
Trouw blijft tot de dood.
