L'offrande

Language: French (Français)

Au dieu d'Amour une pucelle
Offrit un jour une chandelle,
Pour en obtenir un amant.
Le dieu sourit de sa demande
Et lui dit: Belle en attendant
Servez-vous toujours de l'offrande.

Die Opfergabe

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

Eine Kerze bringt dem Liebesgott
die Jungfrau dar als Opfergabe,
dass bald sie ’nen Geliebten habe.
Er lächelte ob dieser Bitte
und sagt, falls sie zu warten habe,
könnt’ stets sie nutzen ihre Gabe.
