Am Dorfsee

Language: German (Deutsch)

Am Dorfsee neigt die Weide
ihr kahles Haupt;
ich und die arme Weide,
wir beide, ja wir beide
stehn einsam und beraubt.

Der Wind bringt von der Scheuke
tanzfrohen Walzerschritt.
Ach, wenn ich an Dich denke,
mich so von Herzen kränke,
weint stumm die Weide mit.

Près du lac du village

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

Près du lac du village le saule penche
Sa tête chauve ;
Moi et le pauvre saule,
Tous les deux, oui, tous les deux,
Nous nous tenons solitaires et dépouillés.

Le vent apporte depuis l'auberge
Le son joyeux de pas de valses.
Ah, quand je pense à toi
Et que j'ai si mal au cœur,
Le saule en silence pleure avec moi.
