Mir träumte wieder der alte Traum:
Es war eine Nacht im Maie,
Wir saßen unter dem Lindenbaum,
Und schwuren uns ewige Treue.

Das war ein Schwören und Schwören aufs neu,
Ein Kichern, ein Kosen, ein Küssen;
Daß ich gedenk des Schwures sei,
Hast du in die Hand mich gebissen.

O Liebchen mit den Äuglein klar!
O Liebchen schön und bissig!
Das Schwören in der Ordnung war,
Das Beißen war überflüssig.

Sonhei
Language: Portuguese (Português)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Sonhei inda uma vez o sonho antigo...
Noite de Maio, suspirava o vento sob as tílias,
O nosso doce abrigo,
Repetindo de amor o juramento, de amor,

De novo tu juraste, eu jurei...
Que de afagos, sorriste, me beijaste;
E para que eu não esquecesse as juras,
Em minha mão teus dentinhos ferraste.

Ó dileta de olhinhos azuis claros!
Meu amor, ó meu bem, ó minha amada!
Estava em ordem o doce juramento,
Mas não estava nos autos a dentada.
