Wir haben viel füreinander gefühlt

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wir haben viel füreinander gefühlt,
Und dennoch uns gar vortrefflich vertragen.
Wir haben oft «Mann und Frau» gespielt,
Und dennoch uns nicht gerauft und geschlagen.
Wir haben zusammen gejauchzt und gescherzt,
Und zärtlich uns geküßt und geherzt.
Wir haben am Ende, aus kindischer Lust,
«Verstecken» gespielt in Wäldern und Gründen,
Und haben uns so zu verstecken gewußt,
Daß wir uns nimmermehr wiederfinden.

Nous avons eu beaucoup de sentiments...

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

Nous avons eu beaucoup de sentiments l'un pour l'autre,
Et nous nous sommes même on ne peut mieux accordés.
Nous avons souvent joué au mari et à la femme,
Et pourtant nous ne nous sommes pas battus ni frappés.
Ensemble nous avons ri et plaisanté,
Et nous sommes tendrement embrassés et cajolés.
À la fin, plaisir enfantin,nous avons joué
À cache-cache dans les bois et les champs,
Et nous avons su si bien nous cacher,
Que nous ne nous retrouverons jamais plus.
