Una paloma blanca
Language: Spanish (Español) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE GER
Una paloma blanca
Como la nieve
Me ha picado en el pecho, 
Como me duele!

Mas allá de la vida
He de quererte,
Que amor está en el alma,
Y esa no muere.

Dicen que sueño es muerte,
Ma yo lo niego,
Pues cuando duermo, vivo,
Cuando no, muero.

Ein weißes Täubchen
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Spanish (Español) 
Ein weißes Täubchen ist’s,
weiß wie der Schnee,
das mir die Brust zerpickt,
ach, wie tut’s weh!

Über den Tod hinaus
lieb ich nur dich,
lieb ich doch mit der Seel’,
und die stirbt nicht.

Man sagt, Schlaf sei der Tod,
ich mein es nicht,
leb ich doch, wenn ich schlaf,
wenn nicht, sterb ich.
