De herfstwind blaast vrolijk alle blaadjes van de boom
Maar in deze folksong Donna Donna
Blaast zij grimmig en voorspeld weinig goeds
Voor het kalf op de wagen...

Donna Donna
On a wagon bound for market
There's a calf with a mournful eye
High above him there's a swallow
winging swiftly through the sky
 
How the winds are laughing
They laugh with all their might
Laugh and laugh the whole day through
And half the summer's night
 
Donna Donna.....
 
'Stop complaining' said the farmer
'Who told you a calf to be ?
Why don't you have wings to fly with
Like the swallow so proud and free?'
 
Calves are easily bound and slaughtered
Never knowing the reason why
But whoever treasures freedom,
like the swallow has learned to fly
