Blaues Sternlein, du sollst schweigen,
Das Geheimnis gib nicht kund.
Sollst nicht allen Leuten zeigen
Unsern stillen [Liebesbund]1.

Mögen andre stehn in Schmerzen,
Jeder sage, was er will;
Sind zufrieden unsre Herzen,
Sind wir beide gerne still.

Petite étoile bleue
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Petite étoile bleue, tu dois te taire,
Ne révèle pas le secret.
Tu ne dois pas montrer à tout le monde
Le lien silencieux entre nos cœurs.

Les autres peuvent rester dans la douleur,
Qu'ils disent ce qu'ils veulent ;
Nos cœurs sont contents,
Nous sommes heureux tous les deux en silence.
