Da unten im Tale
Language: Bavarian (Boarisch)  after the Bavarian (Boarisch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE IRI ITA
Da unten im Tale
Läuft's Wasser so trüb,
Und i kann dir's net sagen,
I hab' di so lieb.

Sprichst allweil von Liebe,
Sprichst allweil von Treu',
Und a bissele Falschheit
Is auch wohl dabei.

Und wenn i dir's zehnmal sag,
Daß i di lieb [und mag]1,
Und du willst nit verstehn,
Muß i halt weitergehn.

Für die Zeit, wo du gliebt mi hast,
[Da]2 dank i dir schön,
Und i wünsch, daß dir's anderswo
Besser mag gehn.

Allà baix a la vall
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the Bavarian (Boarisch) 
Allà baix a la vall
corre una aigua tan tèrbola,
i jo no et puc dir
que t’estimo tant.

Tu sempre parles d’amor,
sempre parles de fidelitat,
i una mica de falsedat
també hi és present.

I quan et dic deu vegades
que t’estimo i que m’agrades
i com que tu no ho vols entendre,
me’n haig d’anar simplement.

Per tot el temps que m’has estimat,
et dono les meves sinceres gràcies,
i et desitjo que amb qualsevol altre
et pugui anar millor.
