“Farewell, happiness, my life,
I know you go around without me
It means we must part;
I won’t see you any more
Dark little night! Ah, but I can not sleep!
I myself don’t know why
You, dear little girl, …
You alone disturb me,
You alone deprived me of rest.
(refrain; Dark etc)
Remember, remember that May day,
My dear one and I went to swim.
We sat on the sand,
On the yellow, the soft sand.
Dark little night! Ah, but I can not sleep…”
