 O Wee, o wee mir armen mann/
 hab nehren zvil getruncken/
 o wee das ichs nit lassen kan/
 mein hirn ist mir gesuncken/
 es laufft als umb/
 bin thol und thumb,
 mein sinn seind mir geschwechet/
 das gsicht ver kert/
 das es nit hört/
 ich hab ubermaß zechet.

 O wee, o wee, ich kan nit gehn/
 wie ist mir doch geschehen/
 kan auch nit auff den füssen stehn/
 wie hab ich uber sehen/
 ich geh im schwanck/
 fall auff die banck/
 o wee, ich kan nit sitzen/
 der magen quilt/
 ist uberfült/
 der wein,
 der wein wil von mir schwitzen.

 Woe, Woe, I poor man/
 I have drunk altogether to much/
 Woe, why couldn't I leave it/
 my brain is fallen in/
 my mind runs in circles/
 I am dull and silly,
 and all my senses are reduced/
 I can't see clearly/
 and I can't hear/
 I have drunk to much.

 Woe, Woe, I can not walk/
 how did this happen/
 Can not stand on my feet /
 how did I miss this comming/
 I can't walk stright/
 and stumbel on the bench/
 Woe, I can not sit/
 my stomach is queasy/
 it's overfull/
 the wine,
 the wine will sweat from me.
