Es sout ein meiskin halen wyn,
'snavens al so spade,
sy hat ein so wit hembdekin aen,
daerduer sach ick die lustelyke maene,
sy sach alhier, sy meint, sie war alleine,
sy hat ein so schoen zwart plaetskin staen
altuissen huer sneewitte beinen.

A maiden went to bring wine.
 Late at night.
 She had only a werry white smallshirt on.
 And through it You could see her lusty behind,
 She looked here,
 she looked there
 and she thought she was all alone.
 She had a werry black place
 between her snow white legs.
