Original text and translations

German.png German text

Wahre, wahre deinen Sohn,
Nachbarin, vor Wehe,
weil ich ihn mit schwarzem Aug'
zu bezaubern gehe.

O wie brennt das Auge mir,
das zu Zünden fordert!
Flammet ihm die Seele nicht --
deine Hütte lodert.

German text by Georg Friedrich Daumer (1800-1875)

Based on a text in Russian by Anonymous/Unidentified Artist [text unavailable]

English.png English translation

Protect, protect your son,
my neighbor, from woe;
for I go with my black eyes
to enchant him.
O how my eyes burn
to inflame his passion!
If his soul will not ignite,
your hut will catch fire.
