Dort in den Weiden steht ein Haus

Language: German (Deutsch)

Dort in den Weiden steht ein Haus,
da schaut die Magd zum Fenster 'naus!
Sie schaut stromauf, sie schaut stromab:
ist noch nicht da mein Herzensknab'?
Der schönste Bursch am ganzen Rhein,
den nenn' ich mein, den nenn' ich mein!

Des Morgens fährt er auf dem Fluß,
und singt herüber seinen Gruß,
des Abends, wenn's Glühwürmchen fliegt,
sein Nachen an das Ufer wiegt,
da kann ich mit dem Burschen mein
[beisammen]1 sein, [beisammen]1 sein!

Die Nachtigall im Fliederstrauch,
was sie da singt, versteh' ich auch;
sie saget: übers Jahr ist Fest,
hab' ich, mein Lieber, auch ein Nest,
wo ich dann mit dem Burschen mein 
die Froh'st' am Rhein, die Froh'st' am Rhein!

Là in mezzo ai pascoli c’è una casa

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

Là in mezzo ai pascoli c’è una casa;
una giovane guarda dalla finestra,
prima scruta a monte e poi a valle:
Non è ancora qui il pupillo del mio cuore?
Il più bel ragazzo che ci sia lungo il corso del Reno,
quello che io chiamo mio, che io chiamo mio!

Di mattina egli viaggia sul fiume
e mi lancia da lì il suo saluto.
Di sera, quando le lucciole si mettono a volare,
la sua barca dondola presso la riva
e posso starmene con il mio caro
vicino a lui, vicino a lui!

L’usignolo gorgheggia nel cespuglio di lillà
e quello che canta io lo capisco.
Dice: il prossimo anno si farà festa,
e io pure avrò un nido, amore mio,
dove sarò con il mio caro
la più felice sul Reno, la più felice sul Reno!
