Das ist ein Flöten und Geigen,
Trompeten schmettern [drein]1;
Da tanzt [wohl]2 den Hochzeitreigen
Die Herzallerliebste mein.

Das ist ein Klingen und Dröhnen,
[Von Pauken und Schalmei'n]3;
Dazwischen schluchzen und stöhnen
Die [guten]4 Engelein.

Això és un tocar de flautes i violins
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Això és un tocar de flautes i violins,
amb ressò de trompetes;
allà balla en la ronda de noces
la meva estimada del cor.

Això és un dringar i sonar,
de timbales i xeremies;
entremig, sanglotegen i gemeguen
els bons angelets.
