A. 230. The Prudent Lovers


(from Rosenthal)
Translated by H. Melvin Symmank

And when the lad goes to (his) sweetheart,
He had a small bacon under his arm.

Smeared the lock over with the bacon
That it would not squeal, squeal on him.

That he can come entering secretly
Enter secretly and exit secretly.

And when the lad goes to (his) sweetheart
He had a measure of oats under his arm.

Pours for the horses oats before them
That they do not neigh, neigh at him.

That he can come entering secretly
Enter secretly and exit secretly.

And when the lad goes to (his) Sweetheart
He has a mass (supply) of corn under his arm.

Pours for the rooster corn before him
That he does not crow, crow too early.

That he can come entering secretly
Enter secretly and exit secretly.

No Music.
