Mei Mueter mag mi net
Language: Bavarian (Boarisch)
Mei Mueter mag mi net,
Und kein Schatz han i net,
Ei warum [sterb']1 i net,
Was tu i do?
Gestern isch Kirchweih g'wä,
Mi [hot mer]2 g'wis net g'seh,
Denn mir [isch's]3 gar so weh,
I tanz [ja]4 net.
Laßt die drei [Rose]5 stehn,
Die an dem Kreuzle blühn:
Hent ihr das Mädle kennt,
Die drunter liegt?
