Schwarzer Wald, dein Schatten ist so...
Language: German (Deutsch) after the Serbian (Српски)
Schwarzer Wald, dein Schatten ist so düster!
Armes Herz, dein Leiden ist so drückend!
Was dir einzig wert, es steht vor Augen;
ewig untersagt ist Huldvereinung.

Nera foresta, la tua ombra
Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)
Nera foresta, la tua ombra è così scura!
Povero cuore, la tua pena è così opprimente!
L'unica cosa che conta per te sta davanti ai tuoi occhi;
ma ti è vietata la gioia di un' unione.
