Wenn du mir vorüberwandelst
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Wenn du mir vorüberwandelst,
Und dein Kleid berührt mich nur,
Jubelt dir mein Herz, und stürmisch
Folgt es deiner schönen Spur.

[Dann]1 drehst du dich um, und schaust mich
Mit den großen Augen an,
[Und mein Herz ist]2 so erschrocken,
Daß es kaum dir folgen kann.

Lorsque tu passes près de moi
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Lorsque tu passes près de moi
Et que ta robe m'effleure
Mon cœur exulte, et il suit
Fiévreusement tes jolies traces.

Puis tu te retournes et me regardes
De tes grands yeux.
Et mon cœur est si effarouché
Qu'il peut difficilement te suivre.
