(From Lobsa)
Translated by Ed Bernthal

A dove has two white feet,
A dove has two white feet,
A youth has two pretty loved ones.

And when he talked with the one,
And when he talked with the one,
The other suffered pain and woe.

‘O don’t worry my dear,
O don’t worry my dear,
You will always be my loved one.’

“With such love you can forget about me,
With such love you can forget about me,
I want to have you all alone.”

So they went hand in hand,
So they went hand in hand,
Out into the countryside.

And in the middle of the scene,
And in the middle of the scene,
They came upon two castles.

‘Now, my maiden, I want you to tell,
Now, my maiden, I want you to tell,
In which one you would like to live.’

“As you wish, my dear, may it be,
As you wish, my dear, may it be,
That I have only you, just you alone!”
