»Schad' um das schöne grüne Band,
Daß es verbleicht hier an der Wand,
Ich hab' das Grün so gern!«
So sprachst du, Liebchen, heut zu mir;
Gleich knüpf' ich's ab und send' es dir:
Nun hab' das Grüne gern!

Ist auch dein ganzer Liebster weiß,
Soll Grün doch haben seinen Preis,
Und ich auch hab' es gern.
Weil unsre Lieb' ist [immergrün]1,
Weil grün der Hoffnung Fernen blühn,
Drum haben wir es gern.

Nun [schlingst du]2 in die Locken dein
Das grüne Band gefällig ein,
Du hast ja's Grün so gern.
Dann weiß ich, wo die Hoffnung [wohnt]3,
Dann weiß ich, wo die Liebe thront,
Dann hab' ich's Grün erst gern.

Com a fita verde do alaúde
Language: Portuguese (Português)  after the German (Deutsch) 
“Que triste que essa linda fita verde
esteja desbotando aqui na parede,
Eu gosto muito de verde!”
Assim você me disse hoje, minha querida;
Eu com certeza a desataria e a daria pra você:
Então, você teria o verde de que gosta tanto!

Mesmo estando teu amante completamente branco, 
O verde também merece seu prêmio, 
E eu também gosto dele.
Porque nosso amor é verdejante,
Porque de verde florescem as distantes esperanças, 
Então nós gostamos dele.

Portanto, enrole nos seus cachos
A fita verde que tanto te agrada,
Sim, você gosta muito de verde.
Aí eu saberei onde mora a esperança,
Aí eu saberei onde reina o amor,
Aí eu terei o verde como cor favorita.
