Translation Singable translation by John Bernhoff (flourished 1890-1912)

Ich steh am Zaune
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Ich steh' am Zaune, schau' in die Gassen;
die Mutter schilt, ich kann's nicht lassen.
Viel Burschen schreiten wohl auf und nieder;
törichtes Herz, er kehrt nicht wieder!

I stand and wait
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
I stand and wait, gaze down the lane;
tho' mother scolds, I gaze again.
Gay youths come singing, for one I yearn;
o foolish heart, he'll ne'er return!

From the Fielitz score.
