B. 068. The Treacherous Nuts


(From: Burk and Anton)
Translated by Ed Bernthal

Don’t be sad, my dear one,
Don’t be sad, my dear one,
Your loved one does not serve far away.

Your loved one serves in Raspan,
Your loved one serves in Raspan,
Your loved one serves in Dotuewach.

Seven years I loved her,
Seven years I loved her,
But said not a word to her.

Only had sent her a small letter,
Only has sent her a small letter,
Who then carried the letter?

The nightingale carried the letter,
The nightingale carried the letter,
This small bird.

Gave the letter to no one,
Gave the letter to no one,
Only to the writer.

Then who read the letter?
Then who read the letter?
The writer alone read the letter.

The writer read the letter,
The writer read the letter,
And looked at the girl.

At her brown eyes,
At her brown eyes,
At her red cheeks.

Girl, you get married,
Girl, you get married.,
Take any one that you want.

‘If I take an old one,
If I take an old one,
What good does an old one do?

If I take a young one,
If I take a young one,
I will have him for a long time.

With him I will go to the market,
With him I will go to the market,
We will buy something at the market.

Wait girl, only wait,
Wait girl, only wait,
Till it is market time in Forst.

Then we want to go to the market,
Then we want to go to the market,
We want to buy something at the market.

Namely, sweet spice cake,
Namely, sweet spice cake,
Namely small nuts.

‘Nuts I will not take,
Nuts I will not take,
They are too treacherous.’

‘They betray one too easily
In the new bedroom,
In the fresh bed.’
