Und schläfst du, mein Mädchen,
Auf, öffne du mir;
Denn die Stund' ist gekommen,
Da wir wandern von hier.

Und bist ohne Sohlen,
Leg' keine dir an;
Durch reisende Wasser
Geht unsere Bahn.

Durch die tief tiefen Wasser
Des Guadalquivir;
Denn die Stund' ist gekommen,
Da wir wandern von hier.

Intermezzo
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
En slaap je, mijn meisje,
Zet de deur op een kier;
Want het uur is gekomen
Dat wij weggaan van hier.
 
En heb je geen schoenen,
Trek er dan ook geen aan;
Door wild stromend water
Voert straks onze baan.
 
Door de diep, diepe waat'ren
Van de Guadalquivir;
Want het uur is gekomen
Dat wij weggaan van hier.
