Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE
Es stehn in unserm Garten
  Der blühenden Rosen genug, -
Dir blüht, noch schöner als Rosen,
  Ein Mägdlein so frisch und so jung.

Ich habe mit Fleiß [gewählet]1
  Die schönsten Rosen zum Strauß, -
Du küssest die rosigen Lippen
  Und lachst am Ende mich aus.

Il y a dans notre jardin
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Il y a dans notre jardin
Assez de roses en fleurs ;
Encore plus belle que les roses, pour toi fleurit
Une fille si fraîche et si jolie.

J'ai choisi avec soin
Les plus belles roses pour un bouquet ;
Tu embrasses ses lèvres rouges
Et à la fin tu te moques de moi.
