Da unten im Tale

Language: Bavarian (Boarisch) after the Bavarian (Boarisch)

Da unten im Tale
Läuft's Wasser so trüb,
Und i kann dir's net sagen,
I hab' di so lieb.

Sprichst allweil von Liebe,
Sprichst allweil von Treu',
Und a bissele Falschheit
Is auch wohl dabei.

Und wenn i dir's zehnmal sag,
Daß i di lieb [und mag]1,
Und du willst nit verstehn,
Muß i halt weitergehn.

Für die Zeit, wo du gliebt mi hast,
[Da]2 dank i dir schön,
Und i wünsch, daß dir's anderswo
Besser mag gehn.

Down in the valley there

Language: English after the Bavarian (Boarisch)

 Down in the valley there
 the water flows so sadly,
 and I can't tell you
 that I love you so.

 You always speak of love,
 you always speak of fidelity,
 but a bit of falsehood
 is always there too.

 And if I tell you ten times,
 that I love and like you,
 and you do not want to understand,
 then I will have to move on.

 For the time that you have loved me,
 I thank you kindly,
 and I wish that somewhere else 
 things may go better for you.
