B. 050. The Slain King


(from Burk and other sources)
Translated by H. Melvin Symmank

1. There once was a Polish King
The courtship of the Kaiser's child.
The courtship of the Kaiser's child.

2. He courted her so long,
Until he finally yet received her.
Until he finally yet received her.

3. The first night he slept with her.
The second he went to war.
The second he went to war.

4. The sad news came to her,
That he was killed in the war.
That he was killed in the war.

5. 'He himself sent the sad letter,
The silken cloth, the diamond ring.
The silken cloth, the diamond ring.

6. 'On it that we should mourn for him
A full seven years and seven days,
And seven weeks yet to that.'
