Dejte klec jestřábu ze zlata ryzého;
nezmění on za ni hnízda trněného.
Komoni bujnému, jenž se pustou žene,
zřídka kdy připnete uzdy a třemene.
A tak i cigánu příroda cos dala:
k volnosti ho věčným poutem, k volnosti ho upoutala.

Darf des Falken Schwinge Tatrahoh'n umrauschen,
wird das Felsennest nicht er mit dem Käfig tauschen.
Kann das wilde Fohlen jagen durch die Heide,
wird's an Zaum und Zügel finden keine Freude.
Hat Natur Zigeuner etwas dir gegeben,
ja zur Freiheit schuf sie mir das ganze Leben.
