1  Under the greenwood tree
Who loves to lie with me,
And turn his merry note
Unto the sweet bird's throat,
Come hither, come hither, come hither:
Here shall he see
No enemy
But winter and rough weather.

2  Who doth ambition shun,
And loves to live i' the sun,
Seeking the food he eats,
And pleas'd with what he gets,
Come hither, come hither, come hither:
Here shall he see
No enemy
But winter and rough weather.

German.png German translation

1  Unter des Laubdachs Hut
Wer gerne mit mir ruht
Und stimmt der Kehle Klang
Zu lustger Vögel Sang:
Komm geschwinde! geschwinde!
Hier nagt und sticht
kein Feind ihn nicht
Als Wetter, Regen und Winde.

2  Wer Ehrgeiz sich hält fern,
Lebt in der Sonne gern,
Selbst sucht, was ihn ernährt,
Und es mit Lust verzehrt:
Komm geschwinde! geschwinde!
Hier nagt und sticht
kein Feind ihn nicht
Als Wetter, Regen und Winde.
