Am Donaustrande,
da steht ein Haus,
da schaut ein rosiges
Mädchen aus.

Das Mädchen,
es ist wohl gut gehegt,
zehn eiserne Riegel
sind vor die Türe gelegt.

Zehn eiserne Riegel
das ist ein Spaß;
die spreng ich
als wären sie nur von Glas.

Sur les plages du Danube
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Sur les plages du Danube,
Il y a une maison,
Là une fille aux joues roses
Regarde dehors.

La fille,
Elle est bien enclose,
Dix cadenas de fer
Sont posés à sa porte.

Dix cadenas de fer
C'est une plaisanterie,
Je les fais sauter,
Comme s'ils étaient de verre.
