L'amante impaziente
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE SPA
Che fa, che fa il mio bene?
Perchè, perché non viene?
Vedermi vuole languir 
Così, così, così!
Oh come è lento nel corso il sole!
Ogni momento mi sembra un dì,
Che fa, che fa il mio bene?
Perchè, perché non viene?
Vedermi vuole languir 
Così, così, così!

Stille frage
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Darf nimmer ich dir nahen?
Nie deinen Gruß empfahen?
Und lesen mein Geschick
In deinem Himmelsblick?

Ob dem Verweg'nen du zürnest? ob zärtlich,
Zärtlich dein Auge sich niedersenkt?
Götter, o wendet den harten Sinn!
Gönnt mir das längst ersehnte Glück!

Sprich, o darf ich nimmer dir nahen?
Nie deinen Gruß empfahen?
Und lesen mein Geschick
In deinem Himmelsblick?

Ach! ob, ob, dem Verweg'nen du zürnest,
Dein Aug', dein Aug' sich zärtlich zu mir neigt!
Ach! ob, ob du dem Verwegenen du zürnest,
Dein Aug', dein Aug' sich freundlich, freundlich sich neigt!
Ach ob, ach ob, ob dein Auge sich zärtlich neigt,
Zärtlich sich neigt!
