A. 213. The Milkmaid's Witty Counsel


Translated by H. Melvin Symmank

The milkmaid's witty counsel, ha!
Is a girl, true as gold, ja!
Is a girl, true as gold.

She had made an apron, ha!
She made bed clothes out of it, ja!
She made bed clothes out of it.

She had hidden them in the bed! ha!
The lease lady had uncovered them, ja!
The lease lady had uncovered them.

She brought it into the room, ha!
As the servants sat at breakfast, ja!
As the servants sat at breakfast.

Just ask of any individual, ha!
Whose these bed clothes are, ja!
Whose these bed clothes are.

The head maid had a good laugh, ha!
The middle maid said nothing, ja!
The middle maid said nothing.

But the milk maid swore very much, ha!
It is never mine, ja!
It is never mine.

Milk maid let the oath alone, ha!
For I have seen you, ja!
For I have seen you.

How you have stolen them, ha!
And hidden them in the bed, ja!
And hidden them in the bed.

(You) are a girl like a pig, ha!
A prostitute from Lueneberg, ja!
A prostitute from Lueneberg.
