In this song, the narrator or poet blames Pierrot for the loss of his laugh – the absence of comedy. By the end, he is harsh toward Pierrot, calling him absurd names.

Conductor Jordan Randall Smith conducts Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire. Smith leads Ars Nova Dallas at the 2009 Dallas Festival of Modern Music.

Pierrot! Mein Lachen Pierrot! My laughter
Hab ich verlernt! I've unlearned!
Das Bild des Glanzes Splendour's image
Zerfloß - Zerfloß! Dispersed--dispersed!

Schwarz weht die Flagge Black the flag flaps
Mir nun vom Mast. At me now from the mast.
Pierrot! Mein Lachen Pierrot! My laughter
Hab ich verlernt! I've unlearned!

O gieb mir wieder, O give me again,
Roßarzt der Seele, Vet of the soul,
Schneemann der Lyrik, Snowman of Lyric,
Durchlaucht vom Monde, Highness of the moon,
Pierrot - mein Lachen! Pierrot--my laughter!
