"Heute marschieren wir!
Juch-he, im grünen Mai!
Morgen marschieren wir
Zu dem hohen Tor hinaus,
Zum hohen Tor hinaus! Aus!"

"Reis'st du denn schon fort?
Je, je! Mein Liebster!
Kommst niemals wieder heim?
Je! Je! Mein Liebster?"

"Heute marschieren wir,
Juch-he, im grünen Mai!
Ei, du schwarzbraun's Mägdelein,
Uns're Lieb' ist noch nicht aus,
Die Lieb' ist noch nicht aus, aus!

Trink' du ein Gläschen Wein
Zur Gesundheit dein und mein!
Siehst du diesen Strauß am Hut?
Jetzo heißt's marschieren gut!
Nimm das Tüchlein aus der Tasch',
Deine Tränlein mit abwasch'!

Heute marschieren wir!
Juch-he, im grünen Mai!
Morgen marschieren wir,
Juch-he, im grünen Mai!"

"Ich will in's Kloster geh'n,
Weil mein Schatz davon geht!
Wo geht's denn hin, mein Schatz?
Gehst du fort, heut schon fort?

Und kommst nimmer wieder?
Ach! Wie wird's traurig sein
Hier in dem Städtchen!
Wie bald vergißt du mein!
Ich! Armes Mädchen!"

"Morgen marschieren wir,
Juch-he, im grünen Mai!
Tröst dich, mein lieber Schatz,
Im Mai blüh'n gar viel Blümelein!
Die Lieb' ist noch nicht aus!
Aus! Aus! Aus! Aus!"

Out! Out!
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
"Today we shall march!
Hurray, in the green Maytime!
Tomorrow we shall march
Out by the high gate,
Out by the high gate! Out!"

"Are you already going away?
Woe, woe! My beloved!
Shall you nevermore come home?
Woe, woe! My beloved?"

"Today we shall march!
Hurray, in the green Maytime!
Oh you black-brown maiden,
Our love is not yet over,
Love is not yet over, over!

Drink a glass of wine
To your and my good health!
Do you see this posy upon my hat?
Now we must march well!
Take the handkerchief out of the pocket,
Dry your tears therewith!

"Today we shall march!
Hurray, in the green Maytime!
Tomorrow we shall march
Hurray, in the green Maytime!"

"I shall enter the convent
Because my darling is departing!
Where are you going, my darling?
Are you going away, today already [going] away?

And shall you never return?
Alas! How sad it shall be
Here in the little town!
How soon you shall forget me!
Me! Poor maiden!"

"Tomorrow we shall march,
Hurray, in the green Maytime!
Take comfort, my dear darling,
Many flowers bloom in May,
Love is not yet over!
Over! Over! Over! Over!"
