Die weiber mit den flöhen/
die habn ein steten krieg/
sie geben auß groß löhen/
daß man sie all erschlüg,
und ließ ir kein entrinnen/
das wär der weiber sitt/
so hettens rhu beim spinnen/
und in der kirchen fried.

English.png English translation

The women with the fleas/
are constantly at war/
they'll give a great reward/
if you could kill them all/
and not let a single one escape/
so that wherever they sitt/
they would have peace, while spinning /
and also peace in church.
