Translation by Emanuel von Geibel (1815 - 1884)

Tango vos, el mi pandero
Language: Spanish (Español) 
Tango vos, el mi pandero,
tango vos y pienso en al.

Si tu, pandero, supieses
mi dolor y le sintieses,
el sonido que hicieses
seria llorar mi mal.

Cuando taño este instrumento
es con fuerzsa de tormento,
por quitar del pensamiento
la memoria de este mal.

En mi corazon, Señores,
son continos los dolores,
los cantares son clamores:
tango vos y pienso en al.

Klinge, klinge, mein Pandero
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Spanish (Español) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Klinge, klinge, mein Pandero,
Doch an andres denkt mein Herz.
 
Wenn du, muntres Ding, verständest
Meine Qual und sie empfändest,
Jeder Ton, den du entsendest,
Würde klagen meinen Schmerz.
 
Bei des Tanzes Drehn und Neigen
Schlag' ich wild den Takt zum Reigen,
Daß nur die Gedanken schweigen,
Die mich mahnen an den Schmerz.
 
Ach, ihr Herrn, dann will im Schwingen
Oftmals mir die Brust zerspringen,
Und zum Angstschrei wird mein Singen,
Denn an andres denkt mein Herz.
