Süßes Liebchen! Komm zu mir!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Süßes Liebchen! Komm zu mir!
Tausend Küsse geb' ich Dir.
Sieh mich hier zu Deinen Füßen.
Mädchen, Deiner Lippen Gluth
Giebt mir Kraft und Lebensmuth.
Laß Dich küssen!

Mädchen, werde doch nicht roth!
Wenns die Mutter auch verbot.
Sollst Du alle Freuden missen?
Nur an des Geliebten Brust
Blüht des Lebens schönste Lust.
Laß Dich küssen!

Liebchen, warum zierst Du Dich?
Höre doch, und küsse mich.
Willst Du nichts von Liebe wissen?
Wogt Dir nicht Dein kleines Herz
Bald in Freuden, bald in Schmerz?
Laß Dich küssen!

Sieh', Dein Sträuben hilft Dir nicht;
Schon hab' ich nach Sängers Pflicht
Dir den ersten Kuß entrissen! -
Und nun sinkst Du liebewarm,
Willig selbst in meinen Arm,
[Läßt]1 Dich küssen!

Flirt

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

Douce chérie ! Viens à moi !
Je te donnerai un millier de baisers,
Si tu veux bien me voir ici à tes pieds.
Chérie, le feu de tes lèvres
Me donne la force et le courage de vivre.
Laisse-moi t'embrasser !

Chérie, ne rougis pas !
Même si ta mère l'a interdit,
Dois-tu être privée de toutes les joies ?
Seulement sur le sein de ton bien-aimé
Les plus beaux plaisirs de la vie ne fleurissent-ils pas ?
Laisse-moi t'embrasser !

Mon amour, pourquoi fais-tu tant d'histoires ?
Écoute-moi et embrasse-moi.
Souhaites-tu connaître autre chose que l'amour ?
Ton petit cœur ne bouillonne-t-il
Tantôt de joie, tantôt de peine ?
Laisse-moi t'embrasser !

Regarde, ta résistance ne m'aide pas ;
Après mon devoir de chanteur, j'ai déjà
Arraché de toi le premier baiser !
Et maintenant chaude d'amour, tu vacilles
Volontiers dans mes bras.
Laisse-moi t'embrasser !
