Du und i
Language: Bavarian (Boarisch) 
Gar so nett trifft es z'samm
und so nett trifft es zua,
dass du, mei Herzensfreud',
du meine Seligkeit,
dass du a Dirndel bist 
und i a Bua.

Gar so nett trifft es zua
und so nett trifft es z'samm,
dass mir am Abend spät,
wann All's schon schlafen geht,
dass mir zur selb'gen Stund'
Zeit all'mal hab'n.

Gar so nett trifft es z'samm
und so nett trifft es zua,
dass ma beim Busselgeb'n
selten wo trifft daneb'n;
du gibst die Busseln her,
i krieg' net gnua!

Und wegen dem so Netten,
da sein ma beinand',
und wegen dem so Netten
da bleib'n ma bekannt,
und wegen dem so Netten
lass' ma nimmer von'and!

You and I
Language: English  after the Bavarian (Boarisch) 
Oh, it happens so just,
and it just happens so,
that you my heart's delight,
you who make life so bright,
that you my sweetheart are,
and I'm your beau.

Oh, it just happens so,
and it happens so just,
that though it's o'er so late,
though all have gone to bed,
we should be wide awake,
and meet we must.

Oh it happens so just,
and it just happens so,
that we should never miss
each one to take a kiss;
sure there's no harm in this,
that we both know.

And just because it happens,
together are we,
and just because it happens,
it brings joy to me,
and just because it happens,
I will never leave thee!

From the Abt score.
