Available translation(s): AFR CAT DUT DUT ENG ENG FIN FRE ITA
Die grüne Hopfenranke,
sie schlängelt auf der Erde hin.
Die junge, schöne Dirne,
so traurig ist ihr Sinn!

Du höre, grüne Ranke!
Was hebst du dich nicht himmelwärts?
Du höre, schöne Dirne!
Was ist so schwer dein Herz?

Wie höbe sich die Ranke,
der keine Stütze Kraft verleiht?
Wie wäre die Dirne fröhlich,
wenn ihr das Liebste weit?

Die klimop se groen stingel
Language: Afrikaans  after the German (Deutsch) 
Die klimop se groen stingel,
hy kronkel op die aarde rond.
Die lieflike jong meisie
is droef en teen die grond!

Nou vra ek, groen gekronkel,
hoekom wil jy nie boontoe mik?
Ek vra ook, mooi, jong meisie,
hoe is jy so bedruk?

Hoe kan die klimop opklim
as hy prieel en stutte mis?
Hoe kan die meisie glimlag as
haar liefste skoonveld is?
