Laugh and the world laughs with you Weep, and you weep alone For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth, But has trouble enough of its own.

    lache und die Welt lacht mit dir weine, und du weinst allein, denn die traurige alte Erde muss sich ihre Fröhlichkeit leihen, hat aber genug Mühe für sich.

    हँसो और दुनिया तुम्हारे साथ रोए, और तुम उदास पुरानी पृथ्वी के लिए अकेले रोओ, अपने जीवन को उधार लेना चाहिए, लेकिन अपने स्वयं के लिए पर्याप्त परेशानी है।


    gülmek ve dünya seninle gülmek ağlamak, ve üzücü eski dünya için neşesini ödünç almak zorunda yalnız başına ağlıyorsun, ama kendi başına yeteri kadar sorun var.

    ہنسنا اور دنیا آپ کے ساتھ ہنستا ہے، اور آپ پریشان پرانے زمین کے لئے صرف روتے ہیں، اس کی موت کو قرض دینا چاہیے، لیکن اس کی کافی تکلیف ہوتی ہے.
