Liebeslieder-Walzer (Op.52)


Nachtigall, sie singt so schön

Nachtigall, sie singt so schön,
Wenn die Sterne funkeln –
Liebe mich, geliebtes Herz,
Küße mich im Dunkeln!

The nightingale sings so sweetly

The nightingale sings so sweetly,
when the stars are sparkling –
Love me, dear heart,
kiss me in the dark!
