Vorría che la tua casa tralucesse

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Vorría che la tua casa tralucesse,
Bellin, quando ci passo per la via;
Tu fossi dentro ed io lí ti vedesse,
Quanti risguardi il cuor mio ti daría.
Quanto risguardi ti daría il cuor mio
Non son gocciole d'acqua giú pel rio,
Quanti risguardi ti daría il mio cuore
Non son gocciole d'acqua quando piove.

O wär dein Haus durchsichtig wie ein...

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

O wär dein Haus durchsichtig wie ein Glas,
Mein Holder, wenn ich mich vorüberstehle!
Dann säh' ich drinnen dich ohn Unterlaß,
Wie blickt' ich dann nach dir mit ganzer Seele!
Wie viele Blicke schickte dir mein Herz,
Mehr als da Tropfen hat der Fluß im März!
Wie viele Blicke schickt' ich dir entgegen,
Mehr als da Tropfen niedersprühn im Regen!
