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!

Savez‑vous, quand mon petit enfant est...

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Savez-vous, quand mon petit enfant est le plus beau de tous ?
Quand sa douce petite bouche badine et rit et embrasse.
Ma petite fille, tu es à moi, je t'embrasse ardemment,
Toi que le cher ciel n'as créée que pour moi !

Savez-vous, quand mon amour me plaît le plus ?
Quand dans ses bras il me tient serrée.
Petit trésor, tu es à moi, je t'embrasse ardemment,
Toi que le cher ciel n'as créé que pour moi !
