He had a leather sack sewed for him

Tidlda, tidlda, tidlda, wek, wek,

‘Good Evening, my miller’s wife,

‘Where should I put my sack?

Tidlda, tidlda, tidlda, wek, wek,

“Just a little bit from the bed,

Tidlda, tidlda, tidlda, wek, wek,
Just a little bit from the bed”.

“Where our dear daughter sleeps,
Where our dear daughter sleeps,
Tidlda, tidlda, tidlda, wek, wek,
Where our dear daughter sleeps”.

As it now was nearly midnight,

Tidlda, tidlda, tidlda, wek, wek,
As it now was nearly midnight.

The girl started to scream,

Tidlda, tidlda, tidlda, wek, wek,

“Oh, Mother, my dear Mother,

Tidlda, tidlda, tidlda, wek, wek
Oh, Mother, my dear Mother!”

“The sack is a live man,

And he wants to come to bed with me!”

‘Oh daughter, my dear daughter,
Oh daughter, my dear daughter,
Tidlda, tidlda, tidlda, wek, wek,
Oh daughter, my dear daughter.”

‘If you only had been quiet,
If you only had been quiet,
Tidlda, tidlda, tidlda, wek, wek,
If you only had been quiet.’

‘You would have been a nobleman’s wife,
You would have been a nobleman’s wife,
Tidlda, tidlda, tidlda, wek, wek,
You would have been a nobleman’s wife!’

“No thanks, to being a nobleman’s wife,
No thanks, to being a nobleman’s wife,
Tidlda, tidlda,tidlda, wek, wek
No thanks, to being a nobleman’s wife!”

“I want to be a master miller’s woman,
“I want to be a master miller’s woman,
Tidlda, tidlda, tidlda, wek, wek,
I want to be a master miller’s woman!”
