Schwor ein junges Mädchen

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Serbian (Српски)

Schwor ein junges Mädchen:
Blumen nie zu tragen,
Niemals Wein zu trinken,
Knaben nie zu küssen.
Gestern schwor das Mädchen -
Heute schon bereut es:
"Wenn ich Blume trüge,
Wär' ich doch noch schöner!
Wenn ich Rotwein tränke,
Wär' ich doch noch froher!
Wenn den Liebsten küßte,
Wär' mich doch noch wohler!"


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE

Serment irréfléchi

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Une jeune fille jura :
Ne jamais porter des fleurs,
Ne jamais boire du vin,
Ne jamais embraser des garçons.
Hier la jeune fille jura -
Aujourd'hui déjà elle regrette :
« Si je portais des fleurs,
Je serais tellement plus belle !
Si je buvais du vin rouge,
Je serais tellement plus gaie !
Si j'embrassais mon bien-aimé,
Je me sentirais tellement plus heureuse ! »
