An einem abend spat gieng ich spatzieren
Für meines Bülen hauß thet jr hoffieren
Wolt zu jr nein/ hofft mir solt nit mißlingen
Ein andrer kam mir vor thet mich verdringen.

Of an evening I went for a walk;
In front of my sweetheart's house I paid her court.
I meant to have her let me in, hoping for no ill-success:
another man came up to me and shoved me away.
Translation by Richard Mix
