Mein Liebster singt am Haus im...

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

Mein Liebster singt am Haus im Mondenscheine,
Und ich muß lauschend hier im Bette liegen.
Weg von der Mutter wend' ich mich und weine, 
Blut sind die Tränen, die mir nicht versiegen.
Den breiten Strom am Bett hab ich geweint,
Weiß nicht vor Tränen, ob der Morgen scheint.
Den breiten Strom am Bett weint' ich vor Sehnen;
Blind haben mich gemacht die blut'gen Tränen.

Mon amoureux chante près de la maison au...

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

Mon amoureux chante près de la maison au clair de lune,
Et je dois être couchée dans mon lit, à l'écouter.
Je me tourne loin de ma mère et je pleure,
Mes larmes sont de sang, et ne sèchent jamais.
J'ai pleuré un grand ruisseau près du lit,
À travers mes larmes je ne sais pas si le matin brille.
De désir j'ai pleuré un grand ruisseau près du lit ;
Les larmes de sang m'ont rendue aveugle.
