Es blasen die blauen Husaren
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT FRE ITA
Es blasen die blauen Husaren
und reiten zum [Tor]1 hinaus;
da komm' ich, Geliebte, und bringe
dir einen [Rosenstrauß]2.

Das war eine wilde Wirtschaft!
[Kriegsvolk und Landesplag']3!
Sogar in deinem Herzen
viel Einquartierung lag.

Les hussards bleus claironnent
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Les hussards bleus claironnent
Et à cheval sortent par la porte;
Alors je viens, ma chérie et t'apporte
Un bouquet de roses.

Ce fut une rude pagaille!
Soldatesque et fléau sur le pays!
Jusque dans ton coeur
Il y eut des cantonnements.
