Man sagt mir, deine Mutter woll es nicht

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

Man sagt mir, deine Mutter woll es nicht;
So bleibe weg, mein Schatz, tu ihr den Willen.
Ach Liebster, nein! tu ihr den Willen nicht,
Besuch mich doch, tu's ihr zum Trotz, im stillen!
Nein, mein Geliebter, folg ihr nimmermehr,
Tu's ihr zum Trotz, komm öfter als bisher!
Nein, höre nicht auf sie, was sie auch sage;
Tu's ihr zum Trotz, mein Lieb, komm alle Tage!

On m'a dit que ta mère n'en veut pas ;

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

On m'a dit que ta mère n'en veut pas ;
Aussi éloigne-toi, mon trésor, réalise son souhait.
Ah, très chère, non ! Ne réalise pas son souhait,
Rends-moi visite, fais-le en dépit d'elle, en secret !
Non, ma bien-aimée, ne l'écoute jamais,
Fais-le malgré elle, viens ici souvent !
Non, n'écoute pas ce qu'elle dit ;
Fais-le malgré elle, mon amour, viens tous les jours !
