Original text and translations

German.png German text

Ich armer knab bin gar schabab/
wo soll ich mich hinkeren/
glücks fall ich harr/
als mancher narr/
der hoffweiß muß erst lernen/
noch kan ich nit den rechten sitt/
in kurtz noch leng erfaren/
kein nacht, kein tag on alle zag/
wil mich darin nit sparen.

English.png English translation

I, poor boy, am totaly worn-out/
where shall I turn/
good luck fails me/
as it fails any fool/
who must, for the first time, learn courtly manners/
I can't get it right/
not with short nor with long practice/
no night, no day without everybody telling me/
I should practice more.
