Morgens steh' ich auf und frage

Language: German (Deutsch)

Morgens steh' ich auf und frage:
Kommt feins Liebchen heut?
Abends sink' ich hin und klage:
Aus blieb sie auch heut.
In der Nacht mit meinem Kummer
lieg' ich schlaflos, [wach]1;
träumend, wie im halben Schlummer,
träumend wandle ich bei Tag.

La mattina mi sveglio e domando

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

La mattina mi sveglio e domando:
verrà oggi l'amore mio?
La sera vado a letto e mi lamento:
neanche oggi è venuta.

Nella notte col mio tormento
giaccio sveglio, senza poter dormire;
sognando, come in dormiveglia
mi trascino di giorno.
