Wißt ihr, [wenn]1 mein Kindchen am allerschönsten ist?
Wenn ihr süßes Mündchen scherzt und lacht und küßt.

Dich erschuf der liebe Himmel einzig nur für mich!

Wißt ihr, [wenn]1 mein Liebster am besten mir gefällt?
Wenn in seinen Armen er mich umschlungen hält.

Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Savez-vous, quand mon petit enfant est le plus beau de tous ?

Quand dans ses bras il me tient serrée.
Petit trésor, tu es à moi, je t'embrasse ardemment,
Toi que le cher ciel n'as créé que pour moi !
