Meysken will di vechten teghen dese knechten,
So doet u hemdeken aen,
En hebt voor my gheen vaer int secreet oft openbaer,
Non fortze voor eenen man,
Compt aen, mijn liever ian.

English.png English translation

Lass, if you would wrestle with these fellows,
put your petticoat on.
Don't be afraid of me, either secretly or openly,
and certainly not of a man.
– Come to me, my dear John.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
