Translation by Paul Heyse (1830 - 1914)

E m'ero spolto per andare a letto
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
E m'ero spolto per andare a letto:
Bella, tu mi venisti in fantasia.
Presto mi rizzo, mi calzo e mi vesto;
Piglio il mi' ribechino e vado via.
E per tutta la via e canto e suono:
Fo innamorar le citte, e le abbandono.
E per tutta la via suono e canto:
Fo innamorar le citte, e poi le lasso.

Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Schon streckt' ich aus im Bett die müden Glieder,
Da tritt dein Bildnis vor mich hin, du Traute.
Gleich spring ich auf, fahr' in die Schuhe wieder
Und wandre durch die Stadt mit meiner Laute.
Ich sing' und spiele, daß die Straße schallt;
So manche lauscht - vorüber bin ich bald.
So manches Mädchen hat mein Lied gerührt,
Indes der Wind schon Sang und Klang entführt.
