A. 127. John and the Jew


(From Kumerau)
Translated by H. Melvin Symmank

There where the heavy wagons run,
Also the beautiful girls drive their coach.

In the first wagon is sugar, dye,
In the other wagon velvet and silk.

In the third wagon beautiful Johanna,
John has one little horse, the Jew, two.

He, whose little horse runs the best,
He will also get beautiful Johanna.

John's little horse runs the best,
Beautiful Johanna will get John.

John has one small ring, the Jew two,
The Jew two, John one small ring.

He, whose ring sounds the most beautiful,
He will also get beautiful Johanna.

John's little ring sounds the best,
Beautiful Johanna will get John.
