Alles, alles in den Wind
sagst du mir, du Schmeichler!
Alle samt verloren sind
deine Müh'n, du Heuchler!
 
Einem andern Fang' zu lieb
stelle deine Falle!
Denn du bist ein loser Dieb,
denn du buhlst um alle!

Alles, alles windlawaai
Language: Afrikaans  after the German (Deutsch) 
Alles, alles windlawaai
wat jy sê, flikflooier –
haan, jy lê met groot gekraai
eiers sonder dooier!

Om ʼn ander te betrap,
stel jou strikke, rakker!
Want jy is ʼn skobbejak
wat om almal jakker!
