La serenata
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG GER
Mira la bianca luna
ascosa d'un bel vel,
vieni alla selva bruna,
vieni, ci arride il ciel.
Vieni, vieni.

Vieni, là tra quell'ombra oscura
vieni, non far rumor,
vien, deh! vien, ti rassicura
non lo saprà che Amor.

Die Serenade
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
 Betrachte den weißen Mond,
 der sich hinter einem schönen Segel verbirgt,
 komm in den dunklen Wald,
 komm, uns lacht der Himmel.
 Komm, komm.
 
 Komm durch den dunklen Schatten,
 komm, mach keinen Lärm,
 komm, komm, ich versichere Dir,
 es wird niemand wissen außer Amor.
