“Wenn du zu meinem Schätzchen kommst, sag’ ich lis schön grüssen.
Wenn sie fragt wie’s mir ging, sag’ auf beiden Füssen.
Wenn sie fragt ob ich krank sei, sag’ ich wär gestorben.
Wenn sie an zu weinen fängt, sag’ ich komme morgen.”

(If you see my sweetheart, send her my greetings.
If she asks how I am, tell her I’m standing on both feet.
If she asks if I’m ill, tell her I died.
If she starts to cry, tell her I’ll be back tomorrow.)
