(From Dablitz)
Translated by John Buerfeind

There stands in our new garden,
Wiriwirijanku!
A green hazel tree.
Oh yea!

What then grew on the hazel tree?
Wiriwirijanku!
Small nuts grew on it,
Oh yea!

Who then has picked the nuts?
Wiriwirijanku!
Juerge himself picked them.
Oh yea!

To whom did he bring them?
Wiriwirijanku!
He brought them to the old mother.
Oh yea!

What do you want for them, my precious!
Wiriwirijanku!
I would very much like to have your Annie.
Oh yea!

For that you will need a lot of bread.
Wirisirijanku!
If I donít have enough bread;
Oh yea!

I will buy her rolls,
Wiriwirijanku!
And crumble them into milk.
Oh yea!
