Ihr Blümlein alle,
Die sie mir gab,
Euch soll man legen
Mit mir in's Grab.

Wie seht ihr alle
Mich an so weh,
Als ob ihr wüßtet,
Wie mir gescheh'?

Ihr Blümlein alle,
Wie welk, wie blaß?
Ihr Blümlein alle,
Wovon so naß?

Ach, Thränen machen
Nicht maiengrün,
Machen todte Liebe
Nicht wieder blühn.

Und Lenz wird kommen,
Und Winter wird gehn,
Und Blümlein werden
Im Grase stehn,

Und Blümlein liegen
In meinem Grab,
Die Blümlein alle,
Die sie mir gab.

Und wenn sie wandelt
Am Hügel vorbei,
Und denkt im Herzen:
Der meint' es treu!

Dann Blümlein alle,
Heraus, heraus!
Der Mai ist kommen,
Der Winter ist aus.

Fiori appassiti
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
 Voi fiorellini tutti
 che lei mi dava,
 vi metteranno
 con me nella tomba.

 Perché mi guardate tutti
 così tristi,
 come se sapeste quello
 che mi è successo?

 Voi fiorellini tutti, 
 perché pallidi, appassiti?
 Voi fiorellini tutti,
 perché così bagnati?

 Ahimè, le lacrime 
 non fanno rinverdire,
 non fanno rifiorire 
 l'amore morto,

 E la primavera verrà,
 e se ne andrà l'inverno,
 e fiorellini nasceranno
 sul prato,

 e fiorellini staranno
 nella mia tomba,
 tutti i fiorellini
 che lei mi dava.

 E quando lei andrà
 per la collina
 pensando nel suo cuore:
 lui era fedele!

 Allora, fiorellini,
 tutti fuori, fuori!
 Maggio è venuto,
 è finito l'inverno.
