Deutsche Volkslieder (Berlin, 1894)
  1. Beautiful eyes’ beautiful radiance,
    beautiful red cheeks’ brilliance;
    beautiful red lips,
    beautiful marble cliffs
    attract my gaze.
  2. Among all those beauties
    only one ever pleased me;
    but on her account
    to enchain myself,
    that I’ll never do.
  3. I want to keep my freedom forever,
    to pass my time in pleasure,
    and during my young years
    to guard my heart fully
    against love’s pain.
