Der Tanz

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es redet und träumet die Jugend so viel,
Von Tänzen, Galloppen, Gelagen,
Auf einmahl erreicht sie ein trügliches Ziel,
Da hört man sie seufzen und klagen.
Bald schmerzet der Hals, und bald schmerzet die Brust,
Verschwunden ist alle die himmlische Lust,
"Nur dießmahl noch kehr' mir Gesundheit zurück!"
So flehet vom Himmel der hoffende Blick!

Jüngst wähnt' auch ein Fräulein mit trübem Gefühl,
Schon hätte ihr Stündlein geschlagen.
Doch stand noch das Rädchen der Parze nicht still,
Nun schöner die Freuden ihr tagen
Drum Freunde, erhebet den frohen Gesang,
Es lebe die teure Irene noch lang!
Sie denke zwar oft an das falsche Geschick,
Doch trübe sich nimmer ihr heiterer Blick.

La danse

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

La jeunesse parle et rêve tant
De danse, de galop, de faire la fête,
Une fois qu'ils atteignent leur but désiré,
Alors on les entend soupirer et se plaindre.
Bientôt la gorge fait mal, la poitrine fait mal,
Tous les désirs célestes disparaissent,
« Si seulement ma santé revenait à nouveau ! »
Ainsi prie le regard plein d'espoir vers le ciel !

Récemment une jeune fille dans une sombre humeur a pensé
Que son heure avait déjà sonné.
Mais la roue du destin ne s'est pas arrêtée,
Maintenant des joies plus belles l'entourent.
Donc les amis, que la chant joyeux s'élève,
Longue vie à notre chère Irène !
Elle pense souvent au mauvais destin,
Mais que ses yeux joyeux ne s'assombrissent jamais.
