Nicht länger kann ich singen, denn der...

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

Nicht länger kann ich singen, denn der Wind
Weht stark und macht dem Atem was zu schaffen.
Auf fürcht ich, daß die Zeit umsonst verrinnt.
Ja wär ich sicher, ging ich jetzt nicht schlafen.
Ja wüßt ich was, würd ich nicht heimspazieren
Und einsam diese schöne Zeit verlieren.

Je ne peux chanter plus longtemps, parce...

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

Je ne peux chanter plus longtemps, parce que le vent
Souffle fort et fait que le souffle est difficile à produire.
Aussi je crains que le temps s'écoule en vain,
Si j'étais certain, je n'irais pas au lit maintenant.
Si je savais quelque chose, je ne marcherais pas vers la maison
Et ne perdrais pas ce temps agréable tout seul.
