Aus dem dunklen Tor
Wallt kein Zug von Mücklein;
Horch! daraus empor
Schallt Trompeterstücklein,
Platz für die schönen Husaren!
Milchmädchen bei Seite!
Drückt euch ans Brückengeländer!
Es ziehn in die Weite
Lustige Knaben.

Fremde! wie das Hengstlein
Den frohen Lauf tanzt,
Wie sein dickes Wänstlein
Der Hauptmann aufpflanzt.
Seien wir munter und denken wir nicht
An den weißen Stein,
Der ihr Füßelein trug,
Wenn am Brunnen die Liebste
Stand bei der Freundin.

Hei! vielleicht ein Windstoß
Am Brunnen wirbelt,
Daß, der sonst gelind floß,
Stäubt und verzwirbelt,
Tröste dich, Herzallerliebste!
Die bausigen Backen
Wird dein Husärlein
Dem Gotte der Winde zerhacken!

La sfilata degli ussari

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

Dalla scura porta
non passa uno sciame di moscerini;
ascolta! Lassù
risuona la musichetta del trombettiere,
largo ai begli ussari!
Ragazzine, fatevi da parte!
Stringetevi al parapetto del ponte!
Arrivano da lontano 
allegri ragazzi.

Stranieri! Guardate come il cavallino
danza in lieta corsa,
e come il capitano pianta
davanti a tutti la sua bella pancia.
Stiamo allegri, non pensiamo
alla pietra bianca,
che portò il suo piedino
quando la bella stava
alla fontana con l'amica.

Ehi! Forse una folata di vento
soffia sulla fontana,
che, di solito tranquilla,
ribolle e vortica,
consolati, mia cara!
Le tue belle rotondità
il tuo ussaretto le sacrificherà
al dio dei venti!
