Een meysken was vroech opgestaen,
heymelyck al stille,
tschoon hemdeken had sy aengedaen
om haers boelkens wille,
sy liet hem in, twas goet begin,
zonder verdriet,
comt ketelt my nu, ken ben niet shu,
maer en scheurt myn hemdeken niet.
Dat meysken loech het was haer gheneucht,
maer sy en sanck gheen ander liet,
dan ketelt me nu, ken ben niet schu,
maer en scheurt myn hemdeken niet.

A girl rose up early, secretly, all quiet;
She put on a nice dress to please her lover.
She let him in, it was a faultless start.
"You can tickle me now, I'm not shy, but don't tear my dress!"
The girl laughed, it pleased her so. But she sang no other song than:
"Tickle me now, I'm not shy, but don't tear my dress!"
