Lebe wohl, lebe wohl, mein Lieb!

Keine Frucht, keine Frucht für mich!
Darf sie nicht erwarten.

Farewell
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Farewell, farewell, my love!
I must leave today.
One kiss, give me one kiss!
For I must leave you forever.

One blossom, pick me one blossom
From the tree in the garden!
No fruit, no fruit for me! --
I dare not expect it.
