Im Thüringer Wald
Language: German (Deutsch) 
In dem Thüringer Wald,
wo die Erdbeeren blüh'n
da weiss ich zwei Lippen, 
die würziger glüh'n.
Da leuchten zwei Augen 
so klar und so hell,
wie die Sonne sich spiegelt 
im silbernen Quell.
Da lockt eine liebliche 
Stimme, das hallt 
wie der Vögel Gesang 
in dem Thüringer Wald.

In dem Thüringer Wald,
wo mit Augen so treu
das Reh vor dem Jäger 
flieht zitternd und scheu,
da floh mir vorüber
das lieblichste Bild,
mit Füssen so zierlich, 
mit Augen so mild.
Das hat mich bezaubert,
und fang ich's nicht bald,
so verirr' ich mich noch 
in dem Thüringer Wald.

In Thuringia's woods
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
In Thuringia's woods
where the strawberris grow,
There know I two sweet lips 
with love all aglow;
Two eyes there are sparkling 
so clear and so bright
that they rival in beauty 
the sun's dazzling light.
There rings a sweet voice 
that with music imbued
Is like singing of birds 
in Thuringian wood.

In Thuringia's woods
where the tender eyed deer,
at sound of the hunter
flees trembling with fear,
once fled there past me 
a most beautiful sprite,
on daintiest feet 
and with eyes wond'rous bright
And if my persuit
she much longer eludes
Then I'm sure to be lost
in Thuringia's woods.
