Wenn ich in deine Augen [seh']1,
So schwindet [all' mein Leid]2 und Weh; 
Doch wenn ich küße deinen Mund,
So werd' ich ganz und gar gesund.

Wenn ich mich lehn' an deine Brust,
Kommt's über mich wie Himmelslust;
Doch wenn du sprichst: ich liebe dich!
[So]3 muß ich weinen bitterlich.

Cuando te miro en los ojos
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Cuando te miro en los ojos
se desvanece todo mi sufrimiento y dolor
pero cuando beso tu boca
quedo completamente sano. 

Cuando me recuesto en tu pecho,
llega sobre mi un celestial placer;
Pero si me dices "te amo"
entonces tengo que llorar amargamente.
