Tambourliedchen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Den Wirbel schlag' ich gar so stark,
Daß euch erzittert Bein und Mark,
Drum denk' ich ans schön Schätzelein,
Blaugrau, 
Blau,
Blaugrau,
Blau
Ist seiner Augen Schein.

Und denk' ich an den Schein so hell,
Von selber dämpft das Trommelfell,
Den wilden Ton, klingt hell und rein:
Blaugrau,
Blau,
Blaugrau, 
Blau 
Sind Liebchens Äugelein.

Canzoncina del tamburino

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

Faccio un rullo di tamburo così forte
che vi tremano le gambe fino al midollo,
perché penso al mio bel tesoro.
Grigioazzurra, 
azzurra,
grigioazzurra, 
azzurra
è la luce dei suoi occhi.

E se penso a quella luce così chiara,
da sola smorza la pelle del tamburo
il suono violento, ma suona chiaro e puro.
Grigioazzurri, 
azzurri,
grigioazzurri, 
azzurri,
sono gli occhi della mia cara.
