Mein Weib die thut mir wehren/
das bier und auch den wein/
 sie spricht ich thu verzeren/
ir gut und auch dz mein/
ir wort die sein gantz eytel/
ich gib ir kürtzen bscheid/
ob schon wird leer der beutel/
kommt doch kein schab ins kleid.

Sie sagt mir vil von Wasser/
es sey ein starckes tranck/
sie spricht ich sey ein prasser/
und wer vom sauffen krank/
kein wein thut sie mir günnen/
daran mir nit vil leidt/
den Weibern ghört der brunnen/
die mann der wein erfrewd.

My wife refuses me
beer and wine/
she says I'm wasting/
both her property and mine/
her words are totaly unfounded/
I'll give her short reply
that the bottel goes empty/
brings no shit in the dress.

She tells me about water /
but that is too strong a drink/
she speaks i am a drunkard
and sick of the booze /
no wine does she bring me/
and I can't stand that/
that woman belong in the well/
wine brings joy to a man.
