Original text and translations

German.png German text

Am Donaustrande, da steht ein Haus
da schaut ein rosiges Mädchen aus.
Das Mädchen ist wohl gut gehegt,
zehn eiserne Riegel sind vor die Türe gelegt.
Zehn eiserne Riegel das ist ein Spass,
die spreng ich als wären sie nur vom Glas.
Am Donaustrande, da steht ein Haus,
da schaut ein rosiges Mädchen aus.
 

English.png English translation

On the Danube’s bank there stands a house,
and there a rosy maiden gazes out.
The maiden is quite well protected;
ten iron bars are blocking her door.
Ten iron bars—that’s a joke!
I’ll break them as if they were only glass.
On the Danube’s bank there stands a house,
and there a rosy maiden gazes out.
