Ach Lieb, ich muß nun scheiden
Language: German (Deutsch)
Ach Lieb, ich muß nun scheiden,
gehn über Berg und Tal,
die Erlen und die Weiden,
die weinen allzumal.
Sie sahn so oft uns wandern
zusammen an Baches Rand,
das eine ohn' den andern
geht über ihren Verstand.
Die Erlen und die Weiden
vor Schmerz in Tränen stehn,
nun denket, wie's uns beiden
erst muß zu Herzen gehn.

Ah, amore, devo andarmene
Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)
Ah, amore, devo andarmene,
via per monti e valli,
gli ontani e i salici,
piangono tutti insieme.
Ci hanno visto così spesso
andare insieme sulla riva del ruscello,
che una senza l'altro
non possono immaginarci.
Gli ontani e i salici
addolorati sono in lacrime,
ora pensate come
a noi due tocca il cuore.
