Liebe Schwalbe, kleine Schwalbe

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

Liebe Schwalbe, kleine Schwalbe,
Du fliegst auf und singst so früh,
Streuest durch die Himmelsbläue
Deine süße Melodie.

Die da schlafen noch am Morgen,
Alle Liebenden in Ruh',
Mit dem zwitschernden Gesange
Die Versunk'nen weckest du.

Auf! nun auf! ihr Liebesschläfer,
Weil die Morgenschwalbe rief:
Denn die Nacht wird den betrügen,
Der den hellen Tag verschlief.

Dear swallow

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 Dear swallow, small swallow,
 you fly up and sing so early,
 strewing through the blue heavens
 your sweet melody.
 
 Those who still are sleeping in the morning,
 all lovers at rest,
 with your twittering songs
 you awaken them from their slumber.
 
 Up! get up! you sleeping lovers -
 the morning swallow is calling:
 for the night will cheat
 those who sleep away the bright day.
