Mit Hand und Herzen Gott zum Gruß,
Ihr lieben Leutchen alle!
Der Spielmann kommt mit leichtem Fuß,
Ob euch ein Lied gefalle.
Die Fiedel streich' ich jederzeit
Und blas' auch auf dem Rohre,
Zum Lautenschlag bin ich bereit
Vor wohlgeneigtem Ohre.
Ich will euch jetzo frisch gewagt
Etliche Stücklein singen,
Und wenn's, Vielwerthen, euch behagt,
Eins nach dem andern bringen.
Denn Lieder und Schanzunen viel
Und Aventiuren weiß ich,
Mein Tagwerk ist Sang, Saitenspiel,
Und Hunold Singuf heiß' ich.

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)
With hand and heart may God greet you,
You dear people all!
The minstrel comes with a light step,
To see if a song might please you.
I play my fiddle anytime
And also blow upon the pipe,
I am prepared to play the lute
Before a well-inclined ear.
Bravely now would I sing
Several little pieces for your,
And, most-valued people, if it suits you,
I would perform one after the other.
For I know many songs
And chansons and epics,
My handiwork is singing, playing the strings,
And my name is Hunold Singuf.
