Rede, Mädchen, allzu liebes,
das mir in die Brust, die kühle,
hat geschleudert mit dem Blicke
diese wilden Glutgefühle!

Willst du nicht dein Herz erweichen,
willst du, eine Überfromme,
rasten ohne traute Wonne,
oder willst du, daß ich komme?

Rasten ohne traute Wonne,
nicht so bitter will ich büßen.
Komme nur, du schwarzes Auge.
Komme, wenn die Sterne grüßen.

Parle, jeune fille, trop chérie
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Parle, jeune fille, trop chérie,
Qui dans ma poitrine, froide,
A projeté d'un regard
Ces sauvages et brûlants sentiments !

N'attendriras-tu pas ton cœur,
Veux-tu, comme une bigote,
Rester sans intimes félicités,
Ou veux-tu que je vienne ?

Rester sans intimes félicités,
Je ne paierai pas un prix si amer.
Allez viens, toi aux yeux noirs,
Viens, lorsque se lèvent les étoiles.
