B. 043. Come to Sleep


(from Burk)
Translated by H. Melvin Symmank

'Come to sleep, dear sweetheart,
'Come, Lizzie, lie down
'Come to sleep, come sleep with me!'

"Where will we be lying?"
'In the straw, dear Lizzie;
'Come to sleep, come sleep with me!'

"The straw is too long."
'(You) must cut it off, Lizzie;
'Come to sleep, come sleep with me!'

"With what should I chop it?"
'With a hatchet, my Lizzie;
'Come to sleep, come sleep with me!'

"Oh, the hatchet is dull."
'(You) must sharpen it, my Lizzie;
'Come to sleep, come sleep with me!'

"But with what to grind it?"
'With a grindstone, my Lizzie;
'Come to sleep, come sleep with me!'

"Where do I find the grindstone?"
'You need to buy it, my Lizzie;
'Come to sleep, come sleep with me!'
