Seh' ich deine zarten Füßchen an

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Azerbaijani (Azərbaycan dili)

Seh' ich deine zarten Füßchen an,
So begreif' ich nicht, du süßes Mädchen,
Wie sie so viel Schönheit tragen können!
 
Seh' ich deine kleinen Händchen an,
So begreif' ich nicht, du süßes Mädchen,
Wie sie solche Wunden schlagen können!
 
Seh' ich deine rosigen Lippen an,
So begreif' ich nicht, du süßes Mädchen,
Wie sie einen Kuß versagen können!
 
Seh' ich deine klugen Augen an,
So begreif' ich nicht, du süßes Mädchen,
Wie sie nach mehr Liebe fragen können,
 
Als ich fühle. -- Sieh mich gnädig an!
Wärmer als mein Herz, du süßes Mädchen,
Wird kein Menschenherz dir schlagen können!
 
Hör' dies wonnevolle Liedchen an!
Schöner als mein Mund, du süßes Mädchen,
Wird kein Mund dir Liebe klagen können!

Quand je regarde tes pieds délicats

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

Quand je regarde tes pieds délicats,
Je ne comprends pas, douce jeune fille,
Comment ils peuvent porter une si belle beauté !

Quand je vois tes petites mains,
Je ne comprends pas, douce jeune fille,
Comment elles peuvent infliger de telles blessures !

Quand je vois tes lèvres roses,
Je ne comprends pas, douce jeune fille,
comment elles peuvent refuser un baiser !

Quand je vois tes yeux modestes,
Je ne comprends pas, douce jeune fille,
Comment ils peuvent demander plus d'amour,

Que j'en éprouve. -- Regarde-moi avec indulgence,
Plus chaudement que mon cœur, douce jeune fille,
Aucun cœur d'homme ne peut battre pour toi !

Écoute ce chant plein de félicité !
Mieux que ma bouche, douce jeune fille,
Aucune bouche ne peut gémir l'amour pour toi !
