Das Wandern ist des Müllers Lust,
Das Wandern!
Das muß ein schlechter Müller sein,
Dem niemals fiel das Wandern ein,
Das Wandern.

Vom Wasser haben wir's gelernt,
Vom Wasser!
Das hat nicht Rast bei Tag und Nacht,
Ist stets auf Wanderschaft bedacht,
Das Wasser.

Das sehn wir auch den Rädern ab,
Den Rädern!
Die gar nicht gerne stille stehn,
Die sich mein Tag nicht müde [drehn]1,
Die Räder.

Die Steine selbst, so schwer sie sind,
Die Steine!
Sie tanzen mit den muntern Reihn
Und wollen gar noch schneller sein,
Die Steine.

O Wandern, Wandern, meine Lust,
O Wandern!
Herr Meister und Frau Meisterin,
Laßt mich in Frieden weiterziehn
Und wandern.

방랑
Language: Korean (한국어/조선말)  after the German (Deutsch) 
방랑은 나의 즐거움,
방랑은!
물방아꾼은 누구나
방랑을 즐겨한다네.
방랑을!

물에게 배워 알았네,
물에게!
밤낮으로 쉬지 않고
흘러갈 생각만 하는
물에게!

물방아 바퀴를 보게,
바퀴를!
서 있기 싫어한다네.
종일 돌며 안 지치네
바퀴는!

방앗돌 가볍게 도네,
방앗돌!
경쾌하게 춤을 추며
더 빨리 돌려 한다네.
방앗돌!

오 방랑, 방랑, 내 기쁨,
오 방-랑!
주인님, 이제 떠나니
흔쾌히 허락해 주오,
방랑길!
