Ein Jüngling liebt ein Mädchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein Jüngling liebt ein [Mädchen,]1
Die hat einen andern erwählt;
Der andre liebt eine andre,
Und hat sich mit dieser vermählt.

Das Mädchen [heiratet]2 aus Ärger
Den ersten besten Mann,
Der ihr in den Weg gelaufen;
Der Jüngling ist übel dran.

Es ist eine alte Geschichte,
Doch bleibt sie immer neu;
Und wem sie [just]3 passieret,
Dem bricht das Herz entzwei.

Un jeune homme adore une belle

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Un jeune homme adore une belle
Dont le cœur d'un autre s'éprit;
L'autre d'une autre demoiselle
S'éprend et devient son mari.

Alors la première, jalouse,
En son dépit, se jette au cou
Du premier venu, qu'elle épouse;
Le jeune homme en pâtit beaucoup.

Ancienne histoire, toujours neuve,
On n'en est point scandalisé; --
Mais quiconque en subit l'épreuve,
N'en revient que le cœur brisé.
