Faulheit, jetzo will ich dir

Language: German (Deutsch)

Faulheit, [jetzo will ich dir]1
Auch ein kleines Loblied bringen! --
O!. . . Wie. . . sau -- er. . . wird es mir
Dich nach Würde zu besingen!
Doch ich will mein Bestes tun:
Nach der Arbeit ist gut ruhn.

Höchstes Gut, wer dich nur hat,
Dessen ungestörtes Leben. . .
Ach!. . . ich gähn!. . . ich. . . werde matt.
Nun, so magst du mir's vergeben,
Daß ich dich nicht singen kann:
Du verhinderst mich ja dran.

Elogio della pigrizia

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

Pigrizia, [ora voglio]1 
offrirti un piccolo canto di lode!
--- Oh! Come... è... duro... per me
cantarti come meriti!
Però, farò del mio meglio:
dopo la fatica è bene riposare.

Bene supremo, per chi ti possiede,
vivere senza essere disturbati.
Ah!... Sbadiglio!... Sono stanco.
Ora, ti piaccia perdonarmi,
se non ti posso cantare:
sei tu che me lo impedisci.
