B. 044. The Preferred Second Beloved

(from Elisabeth Desch in Burk)
Translated by H. Melvin Symmank

1. The Maid had to get up early,
Had to, had to, cut grass, cut grass,
Go cut grass.

2. When she had cut enough grass,
Came to her, her lover came to her, her lover
Dearest to her

3. Oh the lover, he is so very sore
Darling, join me, so that I can become
healthy again.

4. The beauty bound him up equally excellent
As is the excellent, so is the beauty
died instantly.

5. From where, but I now have six fellows,
That she the excellent, that she the beauty to me
carry to the grave?

6. From where but I now have six girls
That they the admirable, that they the beautiful to me
conduct to the grave?

7. Towards the churchyard they brought him there,
The whole churchyard, yes the whole churchyard
they carried him.

8. This of the little golden ring happened,
Which my admirable, which my beautiful
had purchased for me.

9. Pour a full glass for you and also for me,
There is my admirable, there is beautiful already
there at the door.

10. He is so admirable, as ever one was
He is yes, indeed three times, he is yes indeed three times
evermore beautiful.
