Translation by Paul Heyse (1830 - 1914)

Io son venuta a farvi serenata
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Io son venuta a farvi serenata,
Padron di casa, se contento siete.
So che ci avete una giovin garbata:
Dentro le vostre mura la tenete.
E se per sorte fosse addormentata
Questo da parte mia voi le direte:
Che ci è passato un suo caro servente,
Che giorno e notte la tiene in mente.
Tra giorno e notte son ventiquattr'ore;
E venticinque la tengo nel core.

Ein Ständchen Euch zu bringen kam ich...
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE HEB
Ein Ständchen Euch zu bringen kam ich her,
Wenn es dem Herrn vom Haus nicht ungelegen.
Ihr habt ein schönes Töchterlein. Es wär
Wohl gut, sie nicht zu streng im Haus zu hegen.
Und liegt sie schon im Bett, so bitt ich sehr,
Tut es zu wissen ihr von meinetwegen,
Daß ihr Getreuer hier vorbeigekommen,
Der Tag und Nacht sie in den Sinn genommen,
Und daß am Tag, der vierundzwanzig zählt,
Sie fünfundzwanzig Stunden lang mir fehlt.
