Wir gehn nun,`wo der Tudelsack
In unsrer Schenke Brummt.

Und rufen dabei fröhlich aus:
Es lebe Dieskau und sein Haus,
Ihm Sei Beschert,
Was er Begehrt,
Und was er sich selbst wünschen mag!

We go now to where the bagpipe
in our tavern drones.

And as we go we joyfully shout
long live Dieskau and his house.
May he be given
all his desires,
all he would wish for himself.

Translation by Thomas A. Quinn

Nous allons maintenant ou la cornemuse
Bourdonne dans notre taverne;

Et nous écrions joyeusement:
Vive Dieskau et sa lignée:
Que lui soit accordé
Tout ce qu'il désire
Et ce qu'il peut souhaiter pour lui-même!

Translation by Pierre Balascheff
