Translation by Paul Heyse (1830 - 1914)

La casa del mi' amor vada in profondo
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
La casa del mi' amor vada in profondo,
Un lago d'acqua possa diventare
Dentro ci piova coccole di piombo,
Dentro ci vada un serpente ad alloggiare
E ci vada un serpente avvelenato,
Avveleni il mio amor che m'ha lasciato.
E ci vada un serpente avvelenito,
Avveleni il mio amor che m'ha tradito.

Verschling' der Abgrund meines Liebsten...
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Verschling' der Abgrund meines Liebsten Hütte,
An ihrer Stelle schäum' ein See zur Stunde.
Bleikugeln soll der Himmel drüber schütten,
Und ein Schlange hause dort im Grunde.
Drin hause eine Schlange gift'ger Art,
  Die ihn vergifte, der mir untreu ward.
Drin hause ein Schlange, giftgeschwollen,
  Und bring' ihm Tod, der mich verraten wollen!
