Meine Jacke ist ganz noch
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA
Meine Jacke ist ganz noch
Und mein Glas noch voll Gin!
Welt, geh' deiner Wege,
Ich frag' nicht, wohin?

Kein Haus, keine Heimat,
Kein Weib und kein Kind,
So wirbl' ich, ein Strohhalm,
In Wetter und Wind!

Well' auf und Well' nieder,
Bald dort und bald hier;
Welt, fragst du nach mir nicht,
Was frag' ich nach dir?

J. Brahms sets stanzas 2-3

Non ho casa, non ho patria
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 




Non ho casa, non ho patria, 
non ho moglie e non ho figli,
così mi portano, come un figlo di paglia, 
il vento e la tempesta!

Sale e scende l'onda, 
ora qua e ora là;
mondo, se non mi chiedi niente, 
che cosa chiedo a te?
