Schweig einmal still, du garst'ger...

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

Schweig einmal still, du garst'ger Schwätzer dort!
Zum Ekel ist mir dein verwünschtes Singen.
Und triebst du es bis morgen früh so fort,
Doch würde dir kein schmuckes Lied gelingen.
Schweig einmal still und lege dich aufs Ohr!
Das Ständchen eines Esels zög ich vor.

Be silent for once, you detestable babbler!

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 Be silent for once, you detestable babbler!
 Your cursed singing makes  me sick.
 And if you carried on so until tomorrow morning,
 You would still not  manage a decent song.
 Be silent for once, and  lay yourself on the ear!
 I would prefer the serenade of  a donkey!
