An deine schneeweiße Schulter

Language: German (Deutsch)

An deine schneeweiße Schulter
Hab ich mein Haupt gelehnt,
Und heimlich kann ich behorchen,
Wonach dein Herz sich sehnt.

[Es]1 blasen die blauen Husaren,
Und reiten zum Tor herein,
Und morgen will mich verlassen
Die Herzallerliebste mein.

Und willst du mich morgen verlassen,
So bist du doch heute noch mein,
Und in deinen schönen Armen
Will [ich doppelt selig]1 sein.

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

Sur ton sein, plus blanc que la neige
J'incline mon front tendrement,
J'entends ton cœur battre, et devine
De tous tes désirs le secret :

Ha ! les fiers hussards qui s'avancent,
Tout proches : j'entends leurs clairons.
Demain, oui, demain tu ne seras plus mienne
Bien-aimée si chère à mon cœur !

Qu'importe si demain tu me quittes
Pourvu qu'aujourd'hui tu sois à moi !
Pourvu qu'aujourd'hui tes caresses
Me rendent deux fois plus heureux.
