Translation by Paul Heyse (1830 - 1914)

Oh, quanto tempo l'ho desiderato
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Oh, quanto tempo l'ho desiderato
Un damo aver che fosse sonatore!
Eccolo qua che Dio me l'ha mandato
Tutto coperto di rose e viole;
Eccolo qua che vien pianin pianino
A capo basso, e suona il violino.

Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Wie lange schon war immer mein Verlangen:
Ach wäre doch ein Musikus mir gut!
Nun ließ der Herr mich meinen Wunsch erlangen
Und schickt mir einen, ganz wie Milch und Blut.
Da kommt er eben her mit sanfter Miene,
Und senkt den Kopf und spielt die Violine.
