Ihr guten Herrn, ihr schönen Frauen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ihr guten Herrn, ihr schönen Frauen,
So wohlgetputzt und backenrot,
Belieb' es euch mich anzuschauen
Und seht und [mildert]1 meine Not!
Laßt hier mich nicht vergebens leiern!
Nur der ist froh, der geben mag.
Ein Tag, den alle Menschen feiern,
Er sei für mich ein Erntetag.

Buoni signori, signore piacenti

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

Buoni signori, signore piacenti,
rosee nel viso e vestite eleganti,
guardate un attimo, abbiate pietà
ed alleviate la mia povertà!
Non trascurate la mia litania!
Felice è colui che qualche soldo dà via.
Il giorno che a tanti è giorno di festa
sia anche il giorno in cui qualcosa mi resta.
