Wohl schön bewandt
War es vorehe
Mit meinem Leben,
Mit meiner Liebe;
Durch eine Wand,
Ja durch zehn Wände,
Erkannte mich
Des Freundes Sehe;
Doch jetzo, wehe,
Wenn ich dem Kalten
Auch noch so dicht
Vor'm Auge stehe,
Es merkt's sein Auge,
Sein Herze nicht.

Mooi ommuurd
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Mooi ommuurd
was het voorheen
met mijn leven,
met mijn liefde;
door een muur,
ja, door tien muren heen
zag mij het oog
van mijn vriend.
Maar nu, o wee,
ook al sta ik die koele
kerel vlak voor zijn oog,
het ontgaat zijn oog,
en zijn hart.
