B. 191. Wedding Fun


(From Burk)
Translated by Ed Bernthal

The snowberry in the white woods,
The snowberry in the white woods,
Had colored the berries red,
Had colored the berries red.

There the strange birds,
There the strange birds,
Have carried away the berries,
Have carried away the berries.

The girls plucked off the flowers,
The girls plucked off the flowers,
Made wreaths for the youths,
Made wreaths for the youths.

The youths danced gracefully with them,
The youths danced gracefully with them,
And behaved nicely with them,
And behaved nicely with them.

One of them has to have the pretty one,
One of them has to have the pretty one,
How is he going to get her,
How is he going to get her?

Should he hew her out of the rock,
Should he hew her out of the rock,
And get her with his money,
And get her with his money?

With the wide Thaler pieces,
With the wide Thaler pieces,
With the Hungarian Gulden,
With the Hungarian Gulden?

There in Burk she got married,
There is Burk she got married,
And he took her away to Werben,
And he took her away to Werben.

And he took her away to Werben,
And he took her away to Werben,
And brought her to Kolkwitz,
And brought her to Kolkwitz

He danced with her there
He danced with her there.
Having there led the pretty one,
Having there led the pretty one,

Annie, where were you,
Annie, where were you?
Behind the table in the tavern,
Behind the table in the tavern.

In the tavern I served,
In the tavern I served,
Wine and beer, beer and wine
Wine and beer, beer and wine.

Served the young men,
Served the young men,
And charged it to the old fathers,
And charged it to the old fathers.

Served three and charged five,
Served three and charged five,
Who threw in all their silver money,
Who threw in all their silver money.

Threw in all their silver money,
Threw in all their silver money,
So they took care of my loss,
So they took care of my loss.
