English Translation – Wandering Tattler

1. The voice of the sandpiper is soft and sweet
Little bird who lives by the sea
Ever watchful on the beaches
Where the sea is calm

Refrain:
The sandpiper
The sandpiper returns
Sandpiper runs along the beach
Where the sea is peaceful and calm

2. The voice of the sandpiper is soft and sweet
How are you, stranger? Very well
You grace our land
Where the sea is always calm
