La passeggiata
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): GER
Finché sereno è il cielo, 
limpida e cheta l'onda, 
voghiam di sponda in sponda, 
amor ne guidera. 

Al flutto, all'aura, ai fiori, 
noi parlerem d'amor 
e il palpito del core, 
per lor risponderà. 

Ma ciel! gia fischia il vento, 
s'increspa la laguna, 
fischia il vento, presto!  
rapidi il pie' moviam. 

Ah! no, la luna appare, 
vano timor fu solo,
in si ridente suolo
cantiamo, sì cantiam.

Der Ausflug
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Solange der Himmel heiter ist,
klar und ruhig die Welle,
rudern wir von Ufer zu Ufer.
Liebe wird uns führen.

Zur Welle, zum Wind, zu den Blumen
sprechen wir von Liebe,
und das Herzschlagen
wird für sie antworten.

Aber Himmel! Schon pfeift der Wind,
kräuselt sich die Lagune.
Schnell! Lasst uns eilend 
die Füße bewegen.

Ach! nein, der Mond erscheint,
nur vergeblich war die Angst.
In so lachender Landschaft
Lasst uns singen, ja singen.
