A. 105. The Bad Joke


(From: Lohsa)
Translated by Ed Bernthal

‘Go, hurry, my girl.
Wait for me at the foot of the hill
Yes, yes!
Wait for me at the foot of the hill.’

‘If you don’t see me right away,
You can go a little piece further
Yes, yes!
You can go a little piece further.’

As the bell was already striking ten,
The sweetheart was still not to be seen
No, no!
The sweetheart was still not to be seen.

The girl complained and cried a lot,
Wrung her hands and sighed greatly
Oh my!
Wrung her hands and sighed greatly.

‘Be quiet, girl, believe me,
I only played a joke on you
Yes, yes!
I only played a joke on you.’

“Such a joke, I don’t want.
It puts out the light of my life
Oh my!
It puts out the light of my life.”

“Now gone is my honor,
Gone is my green wreath
Oh my!
Gone is my silver ring.”

“All gone are my rosy cheeks,
And my face’s bright glance
Oh my!
And my face’s bright glance.”
