Dem rothen Röslein gleicht mein Lieb

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Scottish (Scots)

 Dem rothen Röslein gleicht mein Lieb,
Im Junimond erblüht;
Mein Lieb ist eine Melodei,
Vor der die Seele glüht.
 
  Wie schön du bist, geliebte Maid!
Wie wird das Herz mir schwer!
Und lieben wird's dich immerdar,
Bis trocken Strom und Meer!
 
  Und würden trocken Strom und Meer,
Und schmölzen Fels und Stein:
Ich würde dennoch lebenslang
Dir Herz und Seele weihn!
 
  [Und]1, holdes Liebchen, lebe wohl!
Leb' wohl, du süße Maid!
Bald kehr' ich wieder, wär' ich auch
Zehn tausend Meilen weit!

Mon amour est comme une petite rose...

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

Mon amour est comme une petite rose rouge,
Qui fleurit à la lune de juin,
Mon amour est une mélodie
Qui enflamme l'âme.

Que tu es belle, ma bien-aimée,
Que mon cœur me pèse ,
Et je t'aimerai toujours
Jusqu'à ce que le fleuve et la mer soient secs,

Et que le fleuve et la mer soient secs
Et le rocher et la pierre fondent,
Je t'aimerais encore
le cœur et l'âme

Maintenant, ma bien-aimée, adieu !
Adieu, ma douce amie !
Bientôt je reviendrai, même si je suis
À dix mille miles.
