Wißt ihr, wenn mein Kindchen am...

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Hungarian (Magyar)

Wißt ihr, [wenn]1 mein Kindchen am allerschönsten ist?
Wenn ihr süßes Mündchen scherzt und lacht und küßt. 
Mägdelein, du bist mein, inniglich küß ich dich,
Dich erschuf der liebe Himmel einzig nur für mich!

Wißt ihr, [wenn]1 mein Liebster am besten mir gefällt?
Wenn in seinen Armen er mich umschlungen hält.
Schätzelein, du bist mein, inniglich küß ich dich,
Dich erschuf der liebe Himmel einzig nur für mich!

Know ye, when my loved one is fairest of all this?

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Know ye, when my loved one is fairest of all this?
If her sweet mouth rosy, jest and laugh and kiss.
Maiden heart, mine thou art. Tenderly I kiss thee.
Thee a loving heaven hath created just for me!

Know ye, when my lover dearest is to me?
When in his fond arms, he enfolds me lovingly.
Dear sweetheart, mine thou art. Tenderly I kiss thee.
Thee a loving heaven hath created just for me!
