A. 271. Good Advice for a Young Man


Translated by Ed Bernthal

Whoever has a desire for marriage
Now give close attention
So that you donít marry a wife
Marry a wife
Which you will regret the rest of your life.

If you take such a one for yourself
As a very young wife
A young wife has hot blood
Hot blood
Which is not good for everyone.

If you take such a wife for yourself
As a very beautiful wife
You will have trouble with her
Trouble with her
Someone else may want to get her.

If you take such a one for yourself
As a very small wife
You will have to bend down to her
Down to her
If you would want to whisper in her ear.

If you take such a one for yourself
As a very tall wife
You will have to use a ladder
Use a ladder
If you want to embrace her a bit.

If you take such a one for yourself
As a very old wife
She might wander around in the yard
Around, around
Around like a night ghost.

If you take such a one for yourself
As a very loud mouth wife
You will need no dog in the house
Dog in the house
Your wife will be the dog in the house.

A poor one, that one leave alone
You wonít be able to do anything with her
It will be a complete failure
A complete failure
No soul will come to you.

If you take such a one for yourself
As a very rich wife
Hey, donít worry yourself
Worry yourself
She will wear the pants for you.

Pretty and honorable, neat and clean
Devout and well behaved she must be
Such a one you must marry
If you want to be free
You will never regret marrying her.
