Original text and translations

French.png French text

Quand mon mary vient de dehors,
Ma rente est d’estre battue :
Il prend la cuillier du pot
À la teste il me la rue.

J’ay grand peur qu’il ne me tue.
C’est un faux vilain, jaloux
C’est un vilain, rioteux, grommeleux.
Je suis jeune et il est vieux.

German.png German text

Wenn mein Mann nach Hause kommt,
werde ich verprügelt.
Er nimmt die Kelle
und haut sie mir an den Kopf.

Ich habe große Angst, dass er mich noch umbringt.
Er ist ein falscher, eifersüchtiger Schuft.
Er ist ein garstiger mürrischer Nörgler.
Ich bin jung und er ist alt.

When the old man comes in from outdoors,
I have to be given a slap;
He takes the ladle to my head,
which gives me the hump.

I am well scared that he'll do me in.
He's a jealous lying toad,
A jeering, grumpy creep.
I'm young and he's old.
(trans. Timmi O'Danaos & Donna Ferrentes)

English.png English translation

When my old man comes home from work
My sad fate is to be whipped:
He grabs a spoon from the pot
And on the head I get clipped.

I fear he’ll put me in the crypt
He’s a lying, jealous rogue
He’s such a rogue, a brawler, uncontrolled,
But I’m young and he is old.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
