Amselchen mein! Sag an!
Ist deine Sehnsucht still,
Wenn du dein Lied gesungen?
Meine nicht! Mein Herz bleibt beklommen!

Was bist du für eine törichte Frau!
Weine nicht! Der Tag wird kommen!

Chanson du merle
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Mon petit merle : Dis-moi !
Est-ce que ton désir est encore là
Quand tu as chanté ton chant ?
Pas le mien ! Mon cœur reste oppressé !
Le petit merle chante : Regarde seulement, regarde,
Quelle femme pleine de folie tu es !
Ne pleure pas ! Le jour va venir !
