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.

Chant de la pluie
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Des gouttes de pluie du haut des arbres
Tombent dans l'herbe verte,
Des larmes de mes yeux embués
Rendent mes joues humides.

Quand le soleil brillera à nouveau,
Le gazon sera deux fois plus vert :
Et sur mes joues deux fois plus
De larmes chaudes couleront.
