Original text and translations

English.png English translation

Springtime is here,
Dancing and singing
Now are beginning,
Cold flies with you.

Hark! how the breeze
moves in the trees,
Birds we have near us
Warbling to cheer us.
Cold flies with you.

Mark we the star
shining afar,
Youth would be roaming,
Forth gladly coming,
Springtime is here.

Translation by John Troutbeck
German.png German text

Frühling ist da,
Tanzen und Springen
Will noch gelingen,
Winter, ade,
Schnee nun und Weh!

Süß in dem Baum
Rauscht es wie Traum,
Vöglein und Winde
Kommen geschwinde,
Winter, ade,
Thränen und Weh!

Nahe und fern
Leuchtet der Stern;
Mädchen und Buben
Schnell aus den Stuben:
Frühling ist da!
