Original text and translations

German.png German text

Die faßnacht thut hertringen,
 wol jetz zu diser zeit/
 vil schellen hört man klingen/
 die narren sind nit weit.

English.png English translation

Shrove Tuesday night is rung in/
 at this time/
 You can hear the sound of much ringing/
 and foolishness is afoot.

English.png English translation

Shrove Tuesday is drawing near
 at present,
 many ring bells are being heard,
 and fools aren't far away.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt
