O Hochland und o Südland!

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

O Hochland und o Südland!
Was ist auf euch geschehn!
Erschlagen der edle Murray,
Werd' nie ihn wiedersehn.

O weh dir! weh dir, Huntley,
So untreu, falsch und kühn,
Sollst ihn zurück uns bringen,
Ermordet hast du ihn.

Ein schöner Ritter war er,
In Wett- und Ringelauf;
Allzeit war unsres Murray
Die Krone obendrauf.

Ein schöner Ritter war er
Bei Waffenspiel und Ball;
Es war der edle Murray
Die Blume überall.

Ein schöner Ritter war er
In Tanz und Saitenspiel;
Ach, daß der edle Murray
Der Königin gefiel.

O, Königin, wirst lange
Sehn über Schlosses Wall,
Eh' du den schönen Murray
Siehst reiten in dem Tal.

De moord op Murray

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

O Hoogland en o Laagland!
Wat is bij u geschied?
Gedood is de edele Murray,
Die nooit men wederziet.
 
O wee jou, wee jou, Huntley,
Zo ontrouw, bruut en vals,
Je moet terug hem brengen,
Jij bracht hem juist om hals.
 
Een knappe ridder was hij,
In wedloop, ringsteekspel;
Altijd was onze Murray
De kroon van ’t hele stel.
 
Een knappe ridder was hij
In ‘t wapenspel, met bal;
Steeds was de eed’le Murray
De beste bovenal.
 
Een knappe ridder was hij
Bij dans en snarenspel;
Hoe hard voor d’ eed’le Murray;
De koningin1 mocht hem wel.
 
O koningin, lang kijk je
Nog over de slotwal,
Eer je de knappe Murray
Ziet rijden in het dal.
