So soll ich dich nun meiden

Language: German (Deutsch)

So soll ich [dich nun]1 meiden,
Du meines Lebens Lust!
Du küssest mich zum Scheiden,
Ich drücke dich an die Brust!

Ach, Liebchen, heißt das meiden,
Wenn man sich herzt und küßt?
Ach, Liebchen, heißt das scheiden,
Wenn man sich fest umschließt?

Scheiden en mijden

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Dus moet ik jou nu mijden,
Jij, laaf’nis van mijn dorst!
Jij kust mij bij het scheiden,
Ik druk jou tegen mijn borst!
 
Ach, liefje, is dat mijden,
Als men omhelst en kust?
Ach liefje, is dat scheiden;
Wordt zo het vuur geblust?
