Komm, lieber Mai, und mache
Die Bäume wieder grün,
Und lass uns an dem Bache
Die kleinen Veilchen blühn!

Wie möchten wir so gerne
Ein Blümchen wieder sehn,
Und in die frische Ferne,
Ins grüne Freie gehen.

Komm, mach es bald gelinder,
Dass alles wieder blüht!
Dann wird das Flehn der Kinder 
Ein lautes Jubellied.

O komm und bring vor allen
Uns viele Rosen mit!
Bring auch viel Nachtigallen
Und schöne Kuckucks mit!

Canção de Maio
Language: Portuguese (Português)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Vem, querido Maio, e torna
As árvores verdes de novo,
E deixa florir junto ao rio
As pequenas violetas!

Queremos tanto 
Voltar a ver uma florinha,
Fresca, à distância,
Ir para o ar livre, verde.

Vem, mais ameno, faz com que
Tudo volte a florir depressa!
Então as súplicas das crianças
Serão um forte hino de louvor.

Oh, vem e traz contigo
Muitas rosas para todos nós!
Traz também muitos rouxinóis
E belos cucos!
