Ihr Matten, lebt wohl,
Ihr sonnigen Weiden!
Der Senne muß scheiden,
Der Sommer ist hin.

Wir fahren zu Berg, wir kommen wieder,
Wenn der Kuckuck ruft, wenn erwachen die Lieder,
Wenn mit Blumen die Erde sich kleidet neu,
Wenn die Brünnlein fließen im lieblichen Mai.

Ihr Matten, lebt wohl,
Ihr sonnigen Weiden!
Der Senne muß scheiden,
Der Sommer ist hin.

El pastor
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Prades, adéu,
pastures assolellades!
El pastor ha de marxar,
l'estiu s'ha acabat.

Anem a la muntanya i tornem
quan crida el cucut, quan desperten les cançons,
quan la terra es vesteix de nou amb flors,
quan les fonts ragen en el dolç mes de maig.

Prades, adéu,
pastures assolellades!
El pastor ha de marxar
l'estiu s'ha acabat.
