Translation by Hermann Kaeser-Kesser (1880 - 1952)

Bad boy
Language: English 
Am a bad boy, bad boy,
Everyones' got me by the neck
Am a bad boy, bad boy,
Everyone's cussing me.
Only booze and badness
Are with me all the time
I beat my woman and my little girl too. 
Beat them this way and that 
Girl, woman, woman, girl.

Übler Bursche
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the English 
Bin ein übler, übler Bursche,
Jeder hat mich auf dem Strich!
Bin ein Bursche, übel, übel,
Jeder schimpft auf mich!
Nur der Schnapps und die Schlechtigkeit
Sind bei mir alle Zeit
Hau' mein Weib durch
Und das kleine Mädel 
Schlag hin, svhalg her,
Schlag darauf, Mädel, Frau, Frau, Mädel!
