Waldständchen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Herbstwinde sausen,
Mühlräder brausen,
Waldmühle plaudert so süß, so fern,
Waldbächlein rauschet,
Mein Herze lauschet
Dem Plaudern der Mühle so gern;
 
Waldmüller mahlet,
Wonniglich strahlet
Waldmüllers schönes Töchterlein.
Durch das Getose,
Liebliche Rose,
Hör' ich und seh' ich nur dich allein!
 
Herbstwinde sausen,
Mühlräder brausen,
Waldmühle plaudert so süß, so nah,
Fensterlein blinket,
Tüchlein mir winket,
Du, süßes Mägdlein, bist da!
 
Nur nicht gezaudert,
Waldmühle plaudert!
Komm doch du schönes Mägdelein.
Durch das Getose,
Liebliche Rose,
Horch meine Sange und lass mich ein.

Serenade in the forest
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Autumn winds whistle,
Mill-wheels are rustling,
Yonder the woodmill is whisp'ring so sweet;
Streamlet is glist'ning,
My heart is list'ning
The clacking I joyfully greet.
 
Woodmiller grindeth,
Fair my heart findeth
Woodmiller's daughter; were she my own!
Midst all the clacking,
Rose no charm lacking,
Hear I and see I but thee alone!
 
Autumn winds whistle,
Mill-wheels are rustling,
Woodmill it whispers so sweet, so near,
Casement is gleaming,
Handkerchief streaming,
Thou sweetest maid, dost appear!
 
Now no delaying,
Millwheels are playing,
Woodmiller's nearest, dearest of kin,
Midst all the clacking,
Rose no charm lacking,
List to my ditty, and let me in.

From the Reinecke score.
Note: the following typos in the score were fixed: "moodmile" instead of "woodmill" [first time only] ; "hist'ning" instead of "list'ning" "great" instead of "greet" ; "Non" instead of "Now" ; and "dacking" instead of "clacking" [second time only]
