A. 111. The Mother’s Curse


(From: Ratzen)
Translated by Ed Bernthal

The widow wants her son to be free, so she says:
The widow wants her son to be free, so she says:
‘Son, don’t stay single for me.’

‘But, dear son, let me say to you.
But, dear son, let me say to you,
Don’t take the daughter, but take the maid.’

‘The daughter of the family is spoiled, she stays
In bed very long and gets a good breakfast,
And has little desire to work.’

‘The servant girl is different, does it right,
Gets up in time for breakfast,
Goes to work like a servant.’

The son did not listen to his mother,
The son did not listen to his mother,
And took the daughter as his.

The mother prays to God at home, and says:
The mother prays to God at home, and says:
Do not let her live in my house.

And as they came to the barn door,
And as they came to the barn door,
The horses raised up high.

The sword jumped out of the youth’s sheath
The sword jumped out of the youth’s sheath
And into the heart of the bride it went.
