Alza la bionda testa, e non dormire

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Alza la bionda testa, e non dormire,
Non ti lasciar superar dallo sonno.
Quattro parole, amore, io son per dire,
Che tutte e quattro son di gran bisogno:
La prima ell'è che mi fate morire,
E la seconda, che un gran ben vi voglio:
La terza, che vi sia raccomandata;
L'ultima, che di voi so' innamorata.

Heb' auf dein blondes Haupt und schlafe...

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

Heb' auf dein blondes Haupt und schlafe nicht,
Und laß dich ja von Schlummer nicht betören.
Ich sage dir vier Worte von Gewicht,
Von denen darfst du keines überhören.
Das erste: daß um dich mein Herze bricht,
Das zweite: dir nur will ich angehören,
Das dritte: daß ich dir mein Heil befehle,
Das letzte: dich allein liebt meine Seele.
