A. 115. The Inn


(From: Neudriewiz)
Translated by Ed Bernthal

The boatman was going to sea
The boatman was going to sea
Even on the deep, deep sea.

He came to a castle
He came to a castle.
There he wanted to stay overnight.

The boatman went into the castle
The boatman went into the castle.
There lived a girl.

‘Hi, good evening, girl
Hi, good evening girl.
Is there any lodging here?’

“I may not give you lodging
I may not give you lodging.
My mother will not allow it.”

‘Then where is your old mother
Then where is your old mother?
I would like to have a good word with her.’

“She is up there in the castle
She is up there in the castle,
In a new room.”

As they both were still talking
As they both were still talking,
She came down in a hurry.

‘Good evening, you old mother!
Good evening, you old mother!
Don’t you want to give me lodging?’

“I would like to give you lodging
I would like to give you lodging,
But where would you sleep?”

‘I would gladly sleep by your daughter
I would gladly sleep by your daughter,
And also take her for my wife.’

“If you want to take her for your wife
If you want to take her for your wife,
You can sleep undisturbed by her.”
