Mit deinen blauen Augen
Siehst du mich [lieblich]1 an,
Da ward mir so träumend zu Sinne,
Daß ich nicht sprechen kann.
 
An deinen blauen Augen
Gedenk' ich allerwärts:
Ein Meer von blauen Gedanken
Ergießt sich über mein Herz.

Mit schwarzen Segeln segelt mein Schiff
wohl über das wilde Meer;
du weißt, wie sehr ich traurig bin,
und kränkst mich [noch]1 so schwer.

Dein Herz ist treulos wie der Wind
und flattert hin und her;
mit schwarzen Segeln segelt mein Schiff
wohl über das wilde Meer.
