Ojos garzos ha la niña

Language: Spanish (Español)

Ojos garzos ha la niña,
quien gelos 'namoraría!

Son tan bellos y tan vivos
que á todos tienen cautívos,
mas muéstralos tan esquivos
que roban el alegría.

Roban el placer y gloria,
los sentidos y memoria,
de todo llevan victoria
con su gentil galanía.

Con su gentil gentileza
ponen fé con mas firmeza,
hacen vivir en tristeza
al que alegre ser solía.

No hay ninguno que los vea
que su cautivo no sea,
todo el mundo los desea
contemplar noche y día.

Ojos garzos ha la niña,
quien gelos 'namoraría!

Blaue Augen hat das Mädchen

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Spanish (Español)

Blaue Augen hat das Mädchen,
Wer verliebte sich nicht drein!
 
Sind so reizend zum Entzücken,
Daß sie jedes Herz bestricken,
Wissen doch so stolz zu blicken,
Daß sie [schaffen eitel]1 Pein!
 
Machen Ruh' und Wohlbefinden,
Sinnen und Erinnrung schwinden,
Wissen stets zu überwinden
Mit dem spielend süßen Schein;
 
Mit dem spielend süßen Scheine
Fesseln sie die Treu' alleine,
Schaffen, daß in Kummer weine,
Wer da fröhlich pflag zu sein.
 
Keiner, der geschaut ihr Prangen,
Ist noch ihrem Netz entgangen,
Alle Welt begehrt zu hangen
Tag und Nacht an ihrem Schein.
 
Blaue Augen hat das Mädchen,
Wer verliebte sich nicht drein!
