by William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
Translation by Johann Ludwig Tieck (1773 - 1853)

Will you buy any tape
Language: English 
Will you buy any tape,
Or lace for your cape,
My dainty duck, my dear-a?
Any silk, any thread,
Any toys for your head,
Of the new'st and finest, finest wear-a?
Come to the pedlar;
Money's a medler.
That doth utter all men's ware-a.

Kauft Band und Spitzen
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the English 
Kauft Band und Spitzen,
Schnür' an die Mützen! 
Putthühnchen, liebe Kleine! 
Auch Zwirn und Seide, 
Und Kopfgeschmeide,
Ganz neue Waar' und feine. 
Wer kommt zum Kaufen,
Das Geld läßt laufen,
Das ganze Pack ist seine.
