Do you really hate me fiercely?

Text by Heinrich Heine (1797-1856)
Translated into English by Joseph Massaad 

deutsch - franšais


Do you really hate me fiercely?
Have you really changed so sadly?
I shall proclaim to the whole world
That you've treated me so badly.

Say, ungrateful lips, how can you
Speak such evil, so cruel-hearted,
Of the man, who often kissed you,
Lovingly, in days departed?
