Es [geht]1 ein Wind durch's weite Land,
Drängt Mund an Mund, [weht]2 Hand in Hand
Und [ist]3 als wie ein Singen.

Hat dich und mich zusammgeweht;
Und wenn er [auch mal]4  stille steht:
Wir Beide wollen springen.

Bufa un vent per el vast país
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Bufa un vent per el vast país,
empeny de boca en boca, venteja de mà en mà
i és com un cantar.

A tu i a mi se’ns ha emportat;
i tot i que de vegades es calmi:
tots dos volem saltironar.
