Du liebst mich nicht, du liebst mich...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du liebst mich nicht, du liebst mich nicht,
Das kümmert mich gar wenig;
Schau' ich dir nur ins Angesicht,
So bin ich froh wie'n König.

Du hassest, hassest mich sogar,
So spricht dein rotes Mündchen;
Reich mir es nur zum Küssen dar,
So tröst' ich mich, mein Kindchen.


Translation(s): ENG ENG FRE FRE FRE FRE RUS

Thou lov'st me not

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Thou lovest me not, thou lovest me not!
   'Tis scarcely worth a sigh:
Let me look in thy face, and no king in his place
   Is a gladder man than I.

Thou hatest me well, thou hatest me well --
   Thy little red mouth has told :
Let it reach me a kiss, and, however it is,
   My child, I am well consoled.
