Available translation(s): DUT ENG FIN FRE ITA
Brennessel steht am Wegesrand,
Neider und Feinde hab' ich in Stadt und Land.
Neidet, haßt, verleumdet, 
doch das bringt mir keine Not,
Wenn mir nur mein süßes Liebchen 
treu bleibt bis zum Tod.

Stinging nettles stand at the side of the road
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Stinging nettles stand at the side of the road:
envious and hate-filled people surround me, in town and country.
I am envied, hated, slandered - 
and yet it brings me no sorrow,
so long as my sweet darling 
remains true till death.
