Translation by Josef Karl Benedikt von Eichendorff (1788 - 1857)

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.

Schwirrend Tamburin, dich schwing ich
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Spanish (Español) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE POR
Schwirrend Tamburin, dich schwing ich,
Doch mein Herz ist weit von hier.

Tamburin, ach könntst du's wissen,
Wie mein Herz von Schmerz zerrissen,
Deine Klänge würden müssen
Weinen um mein Leid mit mir.

Weil das Herz mir will zerspringen,
Laß ich hell die Schellen klingen,
Die Gedanken zu versingen
Aus des Herzens Grunde mir.

Schöne [Herren]1, tief im Herzen
Fühl ich immer neu die Schmerzen,
Wie ein Angstruf ist mein Scherzen,
Denn mein Herz ist weit von hier.
