Killebukken, lammet mitt;
skjønt det ofte går tungt og stritt
opp etter slette fjelle'
følg du vakkert din bjelle.

Killebukken, lammet mitt,
pass så dyktig på skinnet ditt;
mor vil ha det i fellen,
som hun syr seg om kvelden.

Killebukken, lammet mitt,
legg så dyktig på kjøttet ditt;
vet [du]1 ikke, Tuppen,
at mor vil ha det i suppen?
