Original text and translations

German.png German text

Ihr schwarzen Augen, ihr dürft nur winken;
Paläste fallen und Städte sinken.
Wie sollte steh'n in solchem Strauß
mein Herz, von Karten das schwache Haus?

German text by Georg Friedrich Daumer (1800-1875)
Based on a text in Turkish by Anonymous/Unidentified Artist [text unavailable]

English.png English translation

You black eyes, you need only beckon,
and palaces fall and cities sink.
How should then my heart withstand
such strife, inside its weak house of cards?
