Es klopft an das Fenster der Lindenbaum.
Mit Zweigen blütenbehangen:
Steh' auf! Steh' auf!
Was liegst du im Traum?
Die Sonn' ist aufgegangen!
Steh' auf! Steh' auf!

Die Lerche ist wach, die Büsche weh'n!
Die Bienen summen und Käfer!
Steh' auf! Steh' auf!
Und dein munteres Lieb' hab ich auch schon geseh'n.
Steh' auf, Langschläfer!
Langschläfer, steh' auf!
Steh' auf! Steh' auf!

Spring morning
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
 The lindentree taps at the window
 Branches heavy with blooms;
 Get up! Get up!
 Why do you lie dreaming?
 The sun is overhead!
 Get up! Get up!
 
 The lark is up, the bushes blow!
 The bees buzz, and the beetles!
 Get up! Get up!
 And I've already seen your jolly lover
 Get ujp, lazybones!
 Lazybones, get up!
 Get up! Get up!
