Original text and translations

German.png German text

Der heilig herr Sanct Jacob/
der füllet uns die Scheurn/
noch seyn die wucherer so grob/
und alle ding vertheurn/
Alles Getraids kauffen sie vil/
schütten die Kasten vol/
das ist fürwar ein böses spil/
wers wider von ihn haben wil/
der muß bezalen wol.

English.png English translation

The holy lord Saint James/
fills us with itching/
the usurers are rude/
and all goods disappear/
They are buying upp much in all trades/
closing the lids on their filled boxes/
Which is truly an evil play/
Who ever wants to have something/
he must pay well.
