The hunt ist up,
The hunt ist up,
Sing merrily wee,
The hunt ist up,
Hey downe, downe, …

The Birds they sing,
the Deare they fling,
hey nony, nony no.
The Hounds they crye.
the Hunters they flye.
Hey trolilo, trololilo.
Hey trololiloli lo.

The Woods resounds,
To heere the Hounds.
Hey, nony nony nony-no:
The Rocks report,
This merry sport.
hey, trolilo trololilo.

The hunt is up, the hunt is up.
Sing merrily wee the hunt is up.

Then hye apace
Vnto the chase.
Hey, nony nony nony-no.
Whilst euery thing
Doth sweetly sing,
Hey, troli-lo trololy-lo.
