Es ritt ein Jeger hetzen auss, Brüder
   do kam ein munchlein für das hauss, Schwester
   wer do, Ein Mönch, wer do, Ein Mönch,
   lüg, lüg, die gugel sprach!
   vergib, vergib, vergib, vergib
   mein lieber domine.
   
Fraw sagt mir wo ist ewer man, Brüder
   er sucht das wildt wol in dem rhon,
   Schwester

A hunter did ride out hunting, Brother!
There came a monk before his house, Sister!
Whose ther? A Monk! whose there? A monk!
Lug, lug, the Cuccould said,
forgive, forgive, forgive, forgive
forgive me, dear Lord.

Tell me Lady where is your man, Brother!
He is looking for game by the river, Sister!
