Die Post

Language: German (Deutsch)

Von der Straße her ein Posthorn klingt.
Was hat es, daß es so hoch aufspringt,
Mein Herz?

Die Post bringt keinen Brief für dich:
Was drängst du denn so wunderlich,
Mein Herz?

Nun ja, die Post [kömmt]1 aus der Stadt,
Wo ich ein liebes Liebchen hatt',
Mein Herz!

Willst wohl einmal hinübersehn,
Und fragen, wie es dort mag gehn,
Mein Herz?

El correo

Language: Spanish (Español) after the German (Deutsch)

En la calle suena una trompa de correo.
¿Por qué lates tan fuerte
corazón?

El correo no traerá carta para ti, 
¿por qué, pues, te inquietas tanto, 
corazón?

Mas el correo viene de la ciudad
en donde yo tenía una bienamada,
¡corazón!

¿Vas a salir entonces a mirar 
y a preguntar cómo anda todo allí, 
corazón?
