A. 272. Good Advice for Young Ladies


Translated by Ed Bernthal

If I may venture to do so
Girls, I will give you some advice
Take such a man for yourself
Such a man
Whom you will never regret marrying.

Impressive is a rich man
Who will pay all your bills
But he will become a strict master
Strict master
You will have difficulties with him.

If you would like to have a young one
What do you think
Consider how it will be
How it will be
When he dances, plays and drinks.

Some are full of hypocrisy
Lie to others without shame
Make a scheme for themselves
Scheme for themselves
To bring their own one home.

Some think too much of themselves
Puff themselves up and dress so fine
But betray their honor completely
Honor completely
Like a magpie with its tail.

One who does not do that
But only wastes a little all the time
This one would like to marry you
Like to marry you
But his looks are something to spit at.

Donít refuse your hand to someone
Who is known as a good host
Who knows how to nicely support himself
Support himself
So he does not have to go and borrow.

Handsome and honorable, neat and clean
Devout and well behaved he must be
Such a one you must marry
Must marry
With him you will have no regrets.

But you yourself must be concerned
To be industrious all the days of your life
God will hold you both in His hands
In His hands
And will give you generously all that is good.
