Faun "Von Den Elben" lyrics

Translation to: EN FR DE IT PT

Vón den elben wirt entsén vil manic man.
Só bin ich von grózer liebe entsén
Von der besten die ie man ze friunt gewan.
Wil si aber mich darumbe vên,
Mir zunstaten stên, mac sied an rechen sich,
Tuo des ich si bite: si fröut sô sêre mich,
Daz min lip vor wunne muoz zergên.

Swenne ir liehten ougen sô verkêren sich
Daz si mir aldurch mîn herze sên,
swêr da enzwischen danne stêt und irret mich,
dém müeze al sîn wunne gar zergên!
Ich muoz vor ir stên unde warten der vröiden mîn
rehte alsô des tages diu kleinen vogellîn.
Wenne sol mir iemer liep geschên?

Many a man is bewitched by the elves.
Thus have I also been bewitched
By those of greatest charm towards a man.
But if she'd rather spite me for it,
And vent it, might she boil to take revenge,
But does she what I ask her: she would so pleasure me
That I would well dissolve in bliss.

When her bright eyes so turn
That they look right through my heart,
Whoever then were to stand between us and so annoy me,
He shall see all his glee put to an end!
I'll stand and wait for her, my joy,
Like the little birds do for the day.
When shall I ever experience love?
