Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FIN FRE ITA
Nein, Geliebter, setze dich
mir so nahe nicht!
Starre nicht so brünstiglich
mir ins Angesicht!
 
Wie es auch im Busen brennt,
dämpfe deinen Trieb,
daß es nicht die Welt erkennt,
wie wir uns so lieb.

No, my love, don't sit
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
 No, my love, don't sit
 so near me!
 Do not stare so ardently
 at my face!
 
 However much your heart may burn,
 suppress your urges,
 so that the world will not see
 how much we love each other.
