Morgens steh' ich auf und frage
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA
Morgens steh' ich auf und frage:
Kommt feins Liebchen heut?
Abends sink' ich hin und klage:
Aus blieb sie auch heut.
 
In der Nacht mit meinem Kummer
lieg' ich schlaflos, [wach]1;
träumend, wie im halben Schlummer,
träumend wandle ich bei Tag.

Le matin je me lève et me demande
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Le matin je me lève et me demande :
Ma bonne amie viendra‑t‑elle aujourd'hui ?
Le soir je me couche et je me plains :
Aujourd'hui encore, elle est restée dehors.

Durant la nuit, avec mon chagrin
Je suis couché, sans sommeil, [éveillé]1 ;
En rêvant, comme en un demi‑sommeil,
En rêvant, je déambule tout le jour.
