Translation by Ferdinand Gregorovius (1821 - 1891)

Steht mein Liebster auf dem Hügel
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Steht mein Liebster auf dem Hügel,
Komm' ich, bellt sein Hund nach mir;
Hündchen, Hündchen, laß dein Bellen 
Komm' zum Herrn, und nicht zu dir.

Deinen Herren will ich haben,
Liebes Hündchen, sei nur gut;
Haben will ich deinen Herren: 
O was bellst du so in Wut!
