Se vuoi vedere il tuo servo morire

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Se vuoi vedere il tuo servo morire,
Testi capelli non te li arricciare,
Giú per le spalle lasciali ire,
Che paion fila d'oro naturale.
Paiono fila d'oro, oro in filato,
Son belli li capelli, e chi l'ha in capo.
Paiono fila d'oro, e seta fina:
Son belli li capelli, e chi li striga.

Und willst du deinen Liebsten sterben...

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

Und willst du deinen Liebsten sterben sehen,
So trage nicht dein Haar gelockt, du Holde.
Laß von den Schultern frei sie niederwehen;
Wie Fäden sehn sie aus von purem Golde.
Wie goldne Fäden, die der Wind bewegt - 
  Schön sind die Haare, schön ist, die sie trägt!
Goldfäden, Seidenfäden ungezählt -
  Schön sind die Haare, schön ist, die sie strählt!
