Wagen mußt du und flüchtig erbeuten
Language: German (Deutsch)
Wagen mußt du und flüchtig erbeuten,
Hinter uns schon durch die Nacht hör' ich's schreiten,
Schwing' auf mein Roß dich nur schnell
Und küß' noch im Flug mich wildschönes Kind,
Denn der Tod ist ein rascher Gesell.

Devi osare e rapidamente ottenere
Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)
Devi osare e rapidamente ottenere,
dietro di noi nella notte già la sento avanzare,
Balza veloce sul mio cavallo,
e baciami ancora a volo mia bella scontrosa,
ma fallo di corsa,
perché la Morte è una compagna più lesta.
