Regentropfen aus den Bäumen
Fallen in das grüne Gras,
Tränen meiner trüben Augen
Machen mir die Wange naß.

[Wenn die Sonne wieder scheinet,]1
Wird der Rasen doppelt grün:
Doppelt wird auf meinen Wangen
Mir die heiße Träne glühn.

Raindrops from the Trees
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Raindrops from the trees
Fall in the green grass,
Tears from my gloomy eyes
Make my cheeks wet.

When the sun again shines,
The grass will be twice as green:
And on my cheeks, twice as much 
will my hot tears glow.
