Die Schwalben
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE POR
Es fliegen zwei Schwalben ins Nachbar sein Haus,
Sie fliegen bald hoch und bald nieder;
Aufs Jahr, da kommen sie wieder,
Und suchen ihr voriges Haus. 

Sie gehen jezt fort ins neue Land,
Und ziehen jezt eilig hinüber;
Doch kommen sie wieder herüber,
Das ist einem jeden bekannt. 

Und kommen sie wieder zu uns zurück,
Der Bauer geht ihnen entgegen;
Sie bringen ihm vielmahl den Segen,
Sie bringen ihm Wohlstand und Glück.

As andorinhas
Language: Portuguese (Português)  after the German (Deutsch) 
As andorinhas voam para casa do vizinho,
Voam para cima e para baixo.
Todos os anos regressam
E procuram a sua casa anterior.

Agora partem para uma nova terra,
E mudam-se depressa para lá;
Mas tornam a voltar para cá,
Todos o sabemos.

E quando voltam para nós,
O camponês vai ao seu encontro.
Elas trazem-lhe muitas bênçãos,
Trazem-lhe bem-estar e felicidade.
