Wenn die Reben wieder blühen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wenn die Reben wieder blühen, 
Rühret sich der Wein im Fasse,
Wenn die Rosen wieder glühen,
Weiß ich nicht, wie mir geschieht.

Tränen rinnen von den Wangen,
Was ich tue, was ich lasse,
Nur ein unbestimmt Verlangen
Fühl ich, das die Brust durchglüht.

Und zuletzt muß ich mir sagen,
Wenn ich mich bedenk und fasse,
Daß in solchen schönen Tagen
Doris einst für mich geglüht.

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

Quand les vignes refleurissent,
Le vin remue dans le tonneau,
Quand les roses s'embrasent à nouveau,
Je ne sais pas ce qui m'arrive.

Des larmes coulent sur mes joues,
Quoi que je fasse, quoi que j'abandonne,
Je ne sens qu'un désir indéfini
Qui brûle dans ma poitrine.

Et si je me reprends et réfléchis
Il me faut dire au bout du compte
Qu'en ces belles journées de jadis
Doris s'est embrasée pour moi.
