Il pleure dans mon cœur
Language: French (Français) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG ENG GER GER SPA
Il pleure dans mon cœur
Comme il pleut sur la ville ;
Quelle est cette langueur
Qui pénètre mon cœur ?

Ô bruit doux de la pluie,
Par terre et sur les toits!
Pour un cœur qui s'ennuie,
Ô le [chant]1 de la pluie !

Il pleure sans raison
Dans [ce]2 cœur qui s'écœure.
Quoi! nulle trahison ? ...
[Ce]3 deuil est sans raison.

C'est bien la pire peine,
De ne savoir pourquoi
Sans amour et sans haine
Mon cœur a tant de peine!

Llueve sobre mi corazón
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the French (Français) 
Llueve sobre mi corazón
como llueve sobre la ciudad
¿Qué es esta languidez
qué penetra en mi corazón? 

Oh, ruido dulce de la lluvia
por la tierra y sobre los techos.
Para un corazón que se aburre
Oh, el canto de la lluvia.

Llueve sin razón 
En este corazón con náuseas. 
¿Qué? Ninguna traición
Este duelo es sin razón.
 
Está bien la peor pena
de no saber por qué
si no ama ni detesta
mi corazón tiene tanta pena.
