Weint nicht, ihr Äuglein!
Wie kann so trübe 
weinen vor Eifersucht,
wer tödtet durch Liebe?

Wer selbst Tod bringt,
der sollt' ihn ersehnen?
Sein Lächeln bezwingt
was trotzt seinen Tränen.

Weint nicht, ihr Äuglein!
Wie kann so trübe 
weinen vor Eifersucht,
wer tödtet durch Liebe?

Ne pleurez pas, petits yeux
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ne pleurez pas, petits yeux,
Comment peut-il si tristement
Pleurer de jalousie
Celui qui tue par l'amour.

Celui qui lui-même apporte la mort
Devra-t-on soupirer pour lui ?
Son sourire soumet
Ce qui défie ses larmes.

Ne pleurez pas, petits yeux,
Comment peut-il si tristement
Pleurer de jalousie
Celui qui tue par l'amour.
