Ist's dein Wille, süße Maid,
Meinem heißen Liebesstreben
Erst im Tode Raum zu geben,
O da wart' ich lange Zeit!

Soll ich deine Gunst genießen
Erst nach meinem Erdengange,
Währt mein Leben allzulange!
Mag es gleich um Nu zerfließen!

Ist's dein Wille, süße Maid,
Meinem heißen Liebesstreben
Erst im Tode Raum zu geben,
O das ist gar lange Zeit, gar zu lange Zeit!

Serenata da Don Juan
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
È la tua volontà, dolce fanciulla,
Che il mio ardente anelito d'amore
Abbia compenso solo nella morte,
Ah quanto a lungo aspetterò!
 
Potrò godere del tuo favore
Solo dopo la mia dipartita,
La mia vita dura molto a lungo!
Potesse invece sfumare a breve!
 
È la tua volontà, dolce fanciulla,
Che il mio ardente anelito d'amore
Abbia compenso solo nella morte,
Ah è davvero un tempo troppo lungo!
