Moja pieszczotka gdy w wesołej chwili
Language: Polish (Polski) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Moja pieszczotka gdy w wesołej chwili,
Pocznie szczebiotać i kwilić i gruchać :
Tak mile grucha, szczebioce i kwili,
Że nie chcąc słówka żadnego postradać,
Nie śmiem przerywać, nie śmiem odpowiadać,
I tylko chciałbym słuchać, słuchać, słuchać.

Lecz mowy żywość gdy oczki z apali,
I pocznie mocniej jagody różować,
Perłowe ząbki błysną śród korali :
Ach! wtenczas śmielej w oczęta poglądam,
Usta pomykam i słuchać nie żądam,
Tylko całować, całować, całować.

Когда в час весёлый откроешь ты губки
Language: Russian (Русский)  after the Polish (Polski) 
Когда в час весёлый откроешь ты губки,
И мне ты воркуешь нежнее голубки,
Я с трепетом внемлю, я весь вне себя,
Боюсь проронить хоть единое слово,
Молчу, не желаю блазенства иного,
Все слушал бы, слушал и слушал тебя.

Но глазки сверкнули живее кристаллов,
Жемчужные зубки блестят средь кораллов,
Румянец в ланитах уж начал играть!
Теперь я смелее смотрю тебе в очи,
Уста приближаю и слушать нет мочи,
Хочу целовать, целовать, целовать!
