Wenn die Sonne lieblich schiene

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn die Sonne lieblich schiene
Wie in Welschland lau und blau,
Ging' ich mit der Mandoline
Durch die überglänzte Au.

In der Nacht [dann]1 Liebchen lauschte
An dem Fenster süß verwacht;
Wünschte mir und ihr, uns Beiden,
Heimlich eine schöne Nacht.

Wenn die Sonne lieblich schiene
Wie in Welschland lau und blau,
Ging' ich mit der Mandoline
Durch die überglänzte Au.

Quand le riant soleil brillait

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

Quand le riant soleil brillait
Comme dans l'Italie tiède et bleue,
Je partis avec ma mandoline
Par la plaine inondée de lumière.

Plus tard dans la nuit mon amie prêta l'oreille
À la fenêtre doucement éveillée ;
À moi, à elle, à tous deux, elle souhaita
Secrètement une belle nuit.

Quand le riant soleil brillait
Comme dans l'Italie tiède et bleue,
Je partis avec ma mandoline
Par la plaine inondée de lumière.
