Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE ITA SPA
  Mädchen mit dem roten Mündchen,
Mit den Äuglein süß und klar,
Du mein liebes, kleines Mädchen,
Deiner denk' ich immerdar.

 Lang ist heut der Winterabend,
Und ich möchte bei dir sein,
[Bei dir sitzen, mit dir schwatzen]1,
Im vertrauten Kämmerlein.

  An die Lippen [wollt']2 ich pressen
Deine [kleine]3 weiße Hand,
Und mit Thränen sie benetzen,
Deine [kleine, weiße]4 Hand.

Noia amb la boqueta vermella
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Noia amb la boqueta vermella,
amb els ullets dolços i clars,
tu, la meva estimada noieta,
en tu penso en tot moment.

Llarg és avui el vespre d’hivern,
i jo voldria estar amb tu,
seure al teu costat, xerrar amb tu,
a la petita cambra íntima.

Als meus llavis voldria prémer
la teva blanca, petita mà,
i amarar-la de llàgrimes,
la teva blanca, petita mà.
