Was trag ich auff der hende/
 Ein gleßlein mit külem wein/
 wem sol ich aber bringen/
 dem liebsten stal brüder mein/
 hans nickel von der hohen zinnen/
 Es muß sein aigen sein/
 Es flog ein vögelein über den rhein/
 helut, helut, helut, helut
 Ein gleßlein mit külem wein/
 es muß getruncken sein.

What do I carry in my hands?
A glass of cool wine.
To who should I bring it?
My brother did steel my lowe from me.
To Hans Nickel of the lofty mind.
It has to be his own.
A bird did fly ower the Rhine.
Helut, helut.
A glass of cool wine
that must be drunk.
