Original text and translations

German.png German text

Ach weh des Leiden,
muss es dann sein gescheiden?
Ach weh mir Armen,
wen sollt's doch nicht erbarmen?
Ach weh der Schmerzen,
so ich empfind im Herzen.
Muss ich dich dann aufgeben,
so kost's mir mein Leben.

English.png English translation

Alas, what sorrow I feel:
must we part?
Alas, poor me,
who would not sympathise with my plight?
Alas, what pain
I feel in my heart.
If I must give you up
it will cost me my life.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank

Ahimè, che tormento,
dobbiamo davvero lasciarci?
Ah, povero me,
chi potrebbe non provar pietà?
Ahimè che dolore
che provo nel mio cuore.
Se quindi devo rinunciare a te,
è come se mi costasse la vita.

Translation by Timo Baucken
