  Mädchen entsiegelten,
  Brüder! die Flaschen;
  Auf! die geflügelten
  Freuden zu haschen,
Locken und Becher von Rosen umglüht.
  Auf! eh die moosigen
  Hügel uns winken,
  Wonne von rosigen
  Lippen zu trinken;
Huldigung Allem, was jugendlich blüht!

Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
  Les jeunes filles débouchent
  Les bouteilles, frères ;
  Haut ! les joies ailées
  Doivent être attrapées,
Les boucles et les coupes brillent tout autour avec des roses.
  Haut ! avant que les collines
  Moussues nous appellent,
  Bonheur des lèvres
  Roses pour boire ;
Rendons hommage à tout ce qui fleurit avec la jeunesse !
