Eine gute, gute Nacht
Pflegst du mir zu sagen -

Een heel goede, goede nacht
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Een heel goede, goede nacht
Pleeg je mij te wensen –
O, dit vrees’lijk lege woord,
Hoe kan ik ’t verwensen!
 
Als je mijn verhitte ziel
Niet zo wreed liet bloeden;
“Een heel goede, goede nacht”,
Mocht je ‘r daarmee voeden!
