B. 093. The Beaten Husband


(From: Elisabeth Deschen in Burk)
Translated by Ed Bernthal

‘The wife wants to go berry picking,
Hey, juchhei!
Husband, you must stay home,
Taladride raladride raladridom.’

‘Husband, you have to do the spinning at home,
Hey, juchhei!
You must wash the bowls and the dishes.
Taladride raladride raladridom.’

The wife comes home from the berry picking,
Hey, juchhei!
‘Husband, how much spinning have you done?’
Taladride raladride raladridom.’

“Three times I turned it around
Hey, juchhei!
Then I washed the bowls and the dishes,
Taladride raladride raladridom.”

The wife takes the coat pins,
Hey, juchhei!
Beats the husband on his back,
Taladride raldride raladridom!”

The husband jumps out of the window
Hey, juchhei!
To the yard of his neighbor,
Taladride raladride raladridom!”

“My wife has beaten me!
He, juchhei!”
‘My wife also beats me!
Taladride raladride raladridom!”

Why were you such fools,
Hey, juchhei!
To have taken such a one?
Taladride raladride raladridom.

Now, next time be smarter,
Hey, juchhei!
Just take one the likes of yourself,
Taladride raladride raladridom.
