Frühling ist da
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Frühling ist da,
Tanzen und Springen
Will noch gelingen,
Winter, ade,  
Schnee nun und Weh! 

Süß in dem Baum
Rauscht es wie Traum,
Vöglein und Winde
Kommen geschwinde,
Winter, ade,
Thränen und Weh!

Nahe und fern
Leuchtet der Stern;
Mädchen und Buben
Schnell aus den Stuben:
Frühling ist da!

Spring is here
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Spring is here,
Dancing and leaping about
Shall yet be possible,
Adieu, Winter,
Snow now, and woe!

Sweetly in the tree
There is a soughing as in a dream,
Birdlet and wind
Come quickly,
Adieu, Winter,
Tears, and woe!

Near and far
The star shines;
Maidens and lads,
[Come] quickly out of your chambers:
Spring is here!
