FRaw Luddeley, fraw Luddeley/
  und warumb spint jr nit/
So hab ich doch kein rocken nit/
  du loser bößwicht/
auß gieng der arm man/
  bracht der frawen ein rocken hin/
  dannoch span sie nit,
  dannoch span sie nit.

Lady Luddeley, lady Luddeley
  Why are You not spinning?
I have no spinningwheel
  You fool.
  And the poor man
  went out and fethed his wife a spinningwheel
  but still she did not spinn.
