1. Es wollt ein Fraw zum Weine gahn, Herori matori,
Sie wollt den Man nit mit ir lahn,
Guretsch, guretsch, Guritzi maretsch, Herori matori.

2. Wolstu mich denn nit zechen lahn, Herori matori,
So wolt ich zu einr andern gahn,

3. Der Mann muss jetzt sein Narr im Haus, Herori matori,
Die Fraw lebt Tag und Nacht im Sauss,

English.png English translation

A wife was going out to drink, Herori matori,
As her man didn't want to sleep with her,
Guretsch, guretsch, Guritzi maretsch, Herori matori.

If You don't want to sleep with me, Herori…
I will go to another man,

The man sitts at home as a fool, Herori…
The wife lives happily day and night,

English (literal) translation
1. A wife was going out to drink, Herori matori,
She didn’t want to let her man go with her,
Guretsch, Guretsch, Guritzi maretsch, Herori matori.

2. If you don’t let me go drink, Herori matori,
I’ll go to another woman,
Guretsch ...

3. The man must now be the fool at home, Herori matori,
The woman lives day and night in a drunken fog,
