Available translation(s): CAT ENG FIN FRE ITA POR SPA
Wenn mein Schatz Hochzeit macht,
Fröhliche Hochzeit macht,
Hab' ich meinen traurigen Tag!
Geh' ich in mein Kämmerlein,
Dunkles Kämmerlein,
Weine, wein' um meinen Schatz,
Um meinen lieben Schatz!

Blümlein blau! Verdorre nicht!
Vöglein süß! Du singst auf grüner Heide.
Ach, wie ist die Welt so schön!
Ziküth! Ziküth!
Singet nicht! Blühet nicht!
Lenz ist ja vorbei!
Alles Singen ist nun aus.
Des Abends, wenn ich schlafen geh',
Denk' ich an mein Leide.
An mein Leide!

El día en que mi amor se case
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the German (Deutsch) 
El día en que mi amor se case,
el día de su boda, tan dichoso,
¡Será mi día más triste!
Me encerraré en mi habitación,
mi oscura y pequeña habitación,
Y lloraré, lloraré por mi amor,
¡por mi querido amor!

¡Flor azul! ¡No te marchites!
Dulce pajarillo, que cantas en el prado verde.
Ay, ¿cómo puede ser el mundo tan bello?
¡Pío! ¡Pío!
¡No cantes; no florezcas!
La primavera se acabó.
Basta ya de cantar.
Cuando por la noche me acuesto,
Pienso en mi pena,
¡en mi pena!
