A. 138. The One Deceived


(From Buchwalde near Baruth)
Translated by H. Melvin Symmank

In the high mountains
There is a small little spring,
Ho hej!
There is a small little spring.

Washing herself therein fine and clean
Is a beautiful white blushing maiden.
Ho hej!
A beautiful white blushing maiden.

Lost her silver ring
It fell into the little spring,
Ho he!
It fell into the little spring.

He who there will water his horse,
Will truly find the precious ring,
Ho he!
Will truly find the precious ring.

A lad waters his horse there,
Truly finds the precious ring.
Ho he!
Truly finds the precious ring.

'Dear one, give that small ring to me,
I will give you my crown for it.
Ho, he!
I will give you my crown for it.'

"That truly is a dumb thing,
I give you the ring for the crown,
Ho he!
I give you the ring for the crown."

"Yes the ring is really from silver,
The crown is only from poor diamonds.
Ho he!
The crown is only from poor diamonds."

She had seduced him
Into the new small room,
Ho he!
Into the new small room.

He drunk with beer and wine,
Pulled the little ring off of him.
Ho he!
Pulled the little ring off of him.

Pushed him out of the window
Also laughed at him about this.
Ho he!
Also laughed at him about this.

And the young lad said to her:
'Truly I recognized your beautiful face,
Ho, he!
But not your deceit.'
