Schwäbisches Volkslied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mei Mueter mag mi net,
Und kein Schatz hann' i net,
Ei warum schtärb i net,
Was thur' i do?

Geschtern ischt Kirchweih g'wä,
Mi hot mer g'wis net g'seh,
Denn mir ischt gar so weh,
I tanz jo net.

Laßt die drei Rösla steh',
Die an dem Kreuzle blüh'
Hent ihr des Mädle kennt,
Des drunta leit?

My Mother loves me not

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

My Mother loves me not,
and Sweetheart have I not,
by all the world forgot,
would I might die!

Sunday to church I went,
no eye on me was bent,
tears in my eye are pent,
would death were nigh!

Where you three roses grow,
plant me a cross below,
did you the maiden know
that sleeps below?
