Ich war bei Chloen ganz allein

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich war bei Chloen ganz allein,
Und küssen wollt' ich sie.
Jedoch sie sprach, sie würde schrein,
Es sei vergebne Müh!

Ich wagt' es doch und küßte sie,
Trotz ihrer Gegenwehr.
Und schrie sie nicht? Jawohl, sie schrie --
Doch lange hinterher.

I was alone with Chloe

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 I was alone with Chloe,
 and wanted to kiss her;
 but she said
 that she would scream -
 it would be a futile attempt.
 
 Yet I dared, and kissed her
 despite her resistance.
 And did she not scream?
 Oh yes, she did;
 but not until long afterward.
