Tanzlied des Pierrots
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): FRE ITA
Mein Sehnen, mein Wähnen, es träumt sich zurück.
Im Tanze gewann ich, verlor ich mein Glück.
Im Tanze am Rhein, bei Mondenschein,
gestand mir's aus Blauaug ein inniger Blick,
gestand mir's ihr bittend Wort:
o bleib, o geh mit nicht fort,
bewahre der Heimat still blühendes Glück,
mein Sehnen, mein Wähnen, es träumt sich zurück.
Zauber der Ferne warf in die Seele den Brand,
Zauber des Tanzes lockte, ward Komödiant.
Folgt ihr, der Wundersüssen,
lernt unter Tränen küssen.
Rausch und Not, Wahn und Glück,
ach, das ist des Gauklers Geschick.
Mein Sehnen, mein Wähnen, es träumt sich zurück...

Canzone di Pierrot
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
La mia nostalgia, la mia follia, mi portano i sogni del passato.
Nella danza ho trovato ed ho perso la mia fortuna,
nella danza sul Reno, al chiaro di luna,
mi confidò l'intimo sguardo d'un occhio azzurro,
mi confidò la sua parola implorante:
oh, resta, non andare via,
tieni la gioia, che ancora fiorisce, della patria,
la mia nostalgia, la mia follia, mi portano i sogni del passato.
L'incanto di ciò che era lontano mi accese nell'anima la sete,
l'incanto della danza mi sedusse, divenni un commediante.
Seguite queste dolcezze soavi,
imparate a baciare fra le lacrime.
Ebbrezza e dolore, follia e gioia,
questo è il destino del pagliaccio.
La mia nostalgia, la mia follia, mi portano i sogni del passato.
