 Ach alter mann was sächstu an/
 khrest wie ein Han/
 und wilt nur dran/
 magst nit bestahn/
 es ist gethon/
 laß nur davon/
 deins gsunds verschon,
 laß nur davon/
 deins gsunds verschon/
 dann kein Doctor dir helffen kan.

 Oh, old man, what are you waiting for,
 Standing there Crying like a Rooster.
 Tarrying about it
 If you can't get it to stand,
 it is done.
 Just leave.
 Spare your health,
 there is no doctor who can help you.
