Le printemps
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): ENG GER GER SPA
Te voilà, rire du Printemps !
Les thyrses des lilas fleurissent.
Les amantes, qui te chérissent
Délivrent leurs cheveux flottants.

Sous les rayons d'or éclatants
Les anciens lierres se flétrissent.
Te voilà, rire du Printemps !
Les thyrses des lilas fleurissent.

Couchons-nous au bord des étangs,
Que nos maux amers se guérissent !
Mille espoirs fabuleux nourrissent
Nos cœurs émus et palpitants.
Te voilà, rire du Printemps !

Spring
Language: English  after the French (Français) 
You are here, you laughing Spring!
Bunches of lilacs are blossoming.
Lovers who cherish you
Free their flowing hair.

Beneath the rays of sparkling gold
The ancient ivy withers.
You are here, you laughing Spring!
Bunches of lilacs are blossoming.

Let us lie beside ponds
So that our bitter wounds may heal!
A thousand fabulous hopes nourish
Our stirred and fluttering hearts.
You are here, you laughing Spring!
