The Lyrics

incliner = to lean; unsicher = unstable; Holle = hell; tomber = to fall; zerbrechen = to crash; "O Tannenbaum" - traditional German Christmas Song "O Fir (Christmas) Tree"
Conifer (cone of fir) thrives upon the hill
Conifer (cone of fir) hopes to miss the mill
Is it weeping? Willowy - no
Is it leafing? Yes, well so-so
Watch it tow'ring conifer above

Conifer (cone of fir) no pineapples there
Conifer (cone of fir) needles fill the air
Is it scenic? Picturesque so
Is it pointy? Yes, leaves low? No!
Watch it tow'ring conifer above

It's thinking of
What if wood be nicked for things log-gy
For floors and railings:
Unhappy thought it lumbers on
When I hike, there's some boughs high, some felled too

Conifer (cone of fir) tars it can extracts
Conifer (cone of fir) homes for kodiaks

Dons the pine dress? Spruced up super!
Wooden arbor? Yes, it's wood, sir
Watch it tow'ring conifer above
Conifer (cone of fir), Conifer (cone of fir), Conifer (cone of fir)

Conifer (cone of fir) inclin-e un peu
Conifer (cone of fir) unsicher wie Holle!
Tomb-e ils? Sur ma tete, la!
Sie zerbrechet? Ach mein Gott, ja!
Tannen-bombing! Heavy cone of fir!
Conifer (cone of fir), Conifer (cone of fir), Conifer (cone of fir)

(Thud! Thud!)

Thanks everyone! We have solved the mystery: If a tree falls in Frence and German, it DOES make a sound...
