I marinai

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Marinaro in guardia sta!
In guardia sto.
Gia' la notte più s'imbruna,
Gia' il buon vento si cangio'.

Mugghe l'onda:
In gran fortuna presto il mar si levera'.
Marinaro in guardia sta.
In guardia sto. Oh!

Attento sta,
Tira, allenta.
A poppa, a prora,
Via la vela,
Ancora ancora'
Gia' di bordo si volto'.
Dove andrem?
Chi sa?
Marinaro in guardia sta.
In guardia sto.

Romba il tuono
Il vento sibila,
La saetta gia' striscio'.
Si fa, l'acqua.
Dove? La'.
Su, coraggio, io vincero'.

Marinaro in guardia sta.
In guardia sto.
Nel furor della fortuna
Mai timor mi prendera',
L'angiol mio dalla laguna
Ho gia' fede che prego'.

Marinaro in guardia sta.
In guardia sto.
Ecco il ciel si fa sereno,
Spunta il sol nel suo splendor,
Guido' a noi l'arcobaleno
La preghiera dell'amor.

Sceso a spiaggia, la mia bella
Mille volte vo'baciar,
Sara' ognor a vera stella
Del suo fido marinar
A riva, a riva,
Viva il mar.

Die Seeleute

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

 Seemann, sei wachsam!
 Ich bin wachsam.
 Schon dunkelt die Nacht,
 der gute Wind wechselt.
 
 Es tosen die Wellen:
 Bald wird sich die See mächtig erheben.
 Seemann, sei wachsam!
 Ich bin wachsam, Oh!
 
 Gib acht!
 Zieh, lass nach,
 Zum Bug, zum Heck,
 Hol die Segel ein,
 weiter, weiter,
 schon drehen wir ab.
 Wohin fahren wir?
 Wer weiß?
 Seemann, sei wachsam!
 Ich bin wachsam.
 
 Der Donner rollt,
 der Wind pfeift,
 der Blitz leuchtet.
 Wasser im Schiff!
 Wo? Da.
 Nur Mut, ich werde siegen.
 
 Seemann, sei wachsam!
 Ich bin wachsam.
 Wenn auch das Unglück wütet,
 nie wird mich Furcht erfassen.
 Mein Engel an der Lagune,
 so glaub ich fest, wird beten.
 
 Seemann, sei wachsam!
 Ich bin wachsam.
 Jetzt wird der Himmel heiter,
 die Sonne bricht mit ihrem Glanz hervor,
 der Regenbogen wurde zu uns geführt
 vom Gebet der Liebe.
 
 Wenn ich an Land gehe, werde ich meine Schöne
 tausendmal küssen,
 sie wird immer der Leitstern
 ihres treuen Seemanns sein.
 Zum Lande, zum Lande,
 es lebe die See.
