Brauner Bär-Running Bear
J.P. Richardson wrote the song.
This is "Brauner Bär" the German way as sung by Gus Backus.
A rough translation:
Brown Bear was a young Indian with red skin
and he dreamt of making White Dove his wife
but the water of the river between them was just too deep.
Brown Bear and White Dove really loved each other.
He looked over the river and saw her standing there.
She threw kisses early and late.
He'd have gladly kissed her but
how could he with the water between them.
Brown Bear and White Dove really loved each other.
It got hot and the water receded and he jumped over
and they were bound in love.
The water came back and he couldn't return
so he was with her for ever and she was his happiness.
Brown Bear and White Dove really loved each other.

That gives you the idea.
See, not the bitter sweet ending of the English version.
Just happy happy happy.
