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

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.

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.
