Available translation(s): FRE
 Guckst du mir denn immer nach,
 Wo du nur mich findest?
 Nimm die Äuglein [doch]1 in acht!
 Daß du nicht erblindest.

 Gucktest du nicht stets herum,
 Würdest mich nicht sehen;
 Nimm dein Hälschen doch in acht!
 Wirst es noch verdrehen.

Hans und Grete
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
 Me tiens-tu donc toujours à l'œil
 Quand tu me rencontres ?
 Fais donc bien attention à tes petits yeux !
 Pour ne pas être aveuglé.

 Si tu ne regardais pas toujours alentour,
 Tu ne me verrais pas ;
 Fais bien attention à ton petit cou !
 Il va bien se tordre.
