When I can,
then and when I can drive again,
then it no longer keeps me at home.
When the mudflats wet and heavy wrap around my wheels
I feel comfortable in my own skin.

Once Neuwerk still see, in the blue sea
how nice that would be, how nice that would be.
Where old houses stand, in the sunshine,
I would like to be so much, so much.

Every trough no matter how deep
is taken with vigor
and with humor and confidence.
Storm and weather, sunburn,
Rain, snow and poor visibility,
I don’t mind, I’m not afraid of that.

Refrain: Once Neuwerk still sehn,…

My guests on the wagon,
are delighted with Hans and me
and rave very much, from the wide sea.
Yes they want to know many things
From the weather and kissing,
that also gives me a lot of pleasure.

Refrain: Once Neuwerk still sehn,…

Oh Neuwerk you little island
finally you are in sight now
How happy I am, how I love you.
All friends from the coast
reach out to me in greeting
and also two grogs do warm me.

Refrain: Once Neuwerk still seh,…

After the day’s burden and toil,
many Hott and many Hüh
we are drawn back to the farm.
My Anna is happy then,
my children are then happy
and so are Hans and I.

Refrain: Once Neuwerk still sehn…
