Language: French (Français)  after the Greek (Ελληνικά) 
Available translation(s): ENG GER HUN ITA SPA
Réveille-toi, réveille-toi, perdrix mignonne,
Ouvre au matin tes ailes.
Trois grains de beauté,
mon cœur en est brûlé!

Vois le ruban d'or que je t'apporte,
Pour le nouer autour de tes cheveux.
Si tu veux, ma belle, viens nous marier!
Dans nos deux familles, tous sont alliés!

Das Lied der Braut
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the French (Français) 
Erwache, erwache, niedliches Rebhuhn,
Öffne am Morgen deine Flügel.
Drei Muttermale, 
mein Herz ist dafür entbrannt!

Sieh das Goldband, das ich dir bringe,
Um es um deine Haare zu binden.
Wenn du, meine Schöne, willst, so lass uns heiraten!
In unseren zwei Familien sind alle verschwägert!
