Language: German

Reich den Pokal mir schäumenden Weines voll,
Reich mir die Lippen zum Kusse, die blühenden,
Rühre die Saiten, die seelenberauschenden!
Feuer des Mutes brennt im Pokale mir,
Gluten der Liebe glühn auf der Lippe dir,
Flammen des Lebens rauschen die Saiten mir.
Woge des Kampfes, reiß in die Brandung mich!
Wogen der Liebe, hebt zu den Wolken mich!
Schäumendes Leben, jubelnd begrüß ich dich!

Skolie

Language: Italian

Porgimi il boccale, di spumeggiante vino ricolmo,
e le labbra, fiorenti, che le possa baciare,
tocca le corde, che l'animo inebriano!
Arde per me, nella coppa, un fuoco del cuore,
e sulle labbra tue brucia una vampa d'amore,
come fiamme di vita le corde mi parlano.
Onda della lotta, spezzati sopra di me!
Onde dell'amore, sollevatemi fino alle nuvole!
Vita spumeggiante, con gioia io ti saluto!
