Es wollt' ein Mädchen früh aufstehn

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es wollt' ein Mädchen früh aufstehn
Und in den grünen Wald spazieren gehn.

Und als sie nun in den grünen Wald kam,
Da fand sie einen [verwund'ten]1 Knab'n.

Der Knab', der war von Blut so rot,
Und als sie sich verwandt, war er schon tot.

"Wo krieg' ich nun zwei Leidfräulein,
Die mein fein's [Lieb]2 zu Grabe wein'n?

Wo krieg' ich nun sechs Reuterknab'n,
Die mein fein's [Lieb]2 zu Grabe trag'n?

Wie lang' soll ich denn [trauern]3 geh'n?
Bis alle Wasser zusammengeh'n?

Ja, alle Wasser gehn nicht [zusamm'n]4,
So wird mein [Trauern]5 kein Ende ha'n.

Over de gewonde jonkman

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

Er wou een meisje vroeg opstaan
En in het groene woud uit wand'len gaan.
 
En toen zij nu in het groene woud kwam,
Daar vond zij een gewonde man1.
.
De jonkman was van bloed zo rood,
En toen zij hem verliet, was hij al dood.
 
Waar tref ik nu twee klaagsters aan,
Die mijn liefs graf2 mee  bewenen gaan?
 
Waar vind ik nu zes ruiters staan,
Die met mijn lief naar 't graf toe gaan3?
 
Hoe lang moet ik dan treuren gaan?
Tot alle waat'ren tesamengaan?
 
Ja, alle waat'ren gaan niet tesaam,
Mijn rouw, daar komt dus geen einde aan.
