German Text

Hunderttausend Schmeicheleien
Wallen jetzt in meiner Brust;

Und die Lust,
So die Zärtlichkeiten zeigen,
Kann die Zunge nicht verschweigen.

English Translation

A hundred thousand pleasantries
Dominate in my bosom now;

And the joy
Is revealed by so many tendernesses,
That my tongue cannot keep silent.
