Und der Nachbarssohn, der Ruprecht
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT FRE
Und der Nachbarssohn, der Ruprecht,
  Wie oft der des Tages kam;
Denn wir spielten ja im dunklen Hausflur
  Immer Braut und Bräutigam.

Und der grüne Puppenwagen,
  Der war unser grösstes Glück:
Unsre Kinder schliefen drinne,
  Unsre Kinder, meine Puppen - dreizehn Stück.

Et le fils du voisin, Ruprecht
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Et le fils du voisin, Ruprecht,
Combien de fois il venait chaque jour ;
Alors nous jouions dans le hall sombre
Toujours au marié et à la mariée.

Et le landau vert
Était notre plus grand trésor :
Nos enfants dormaient à l'intérieur,
Nos enfants, mes poupées, au nombre de treize.
