Virtue
Du bist meine,
You are mine,
 
 
Beide
Both
Küsse mich,
Kiss me,
Ich küsse dich.
I kiss you.
Wie Verlobte sich verbinden,
As lovers bind each other,
Wie die Lust, die sie empfinden,
just like the delight that they feel,
Treu und zart und eiferig,
faithful and tender and eager,
So bin ich.
so am I.
