Liebeslieder-Walzer (Op.52)

O die Frauen, o die Frauen

O die Frauen, o die Frauen,
Wie sie Wonne tauen!
Wäre lang ein Mönch geworden,
Wären nicht die Frauen!

O women, o women

O women, o women,
how they delight the heart!
I should have long since turned monk,
were it not for women!
Translations by Richard Stokes, author of The Book of Lieder (Faber, 2005)
