Mein muter zeyhet mich/
zwölff knaben freyen mich/
Der erst der teht mir wincken/
der Ander mein gedencken/
der Drit der trat mir auff den fuß/
der Vierd bot mir ein freundtlichen gruß/
der fünfft bot mir das fingerlein/
der sechst der muß mein eygen sein/
der siebent bot mir das rote goldt/
der acht was mir von hertzen hold,
der Neundt lag mir an meinem arm/
der zehent was noch nie erwarmbt/
der Eylfft was mein ehlich man/
der Zwelfft gieng in der stil darvon/
die Zwelff knaben gut/
die selbigen zwelff knaben gut/
die fürten ein guten frischen freyen mut.

My mother told me:
Twelve boys have courted me,
The first only winked to me,
The second only did thimk of me,
The third stept on my toes,
The fourth bid me freindly god day,
the fifth gave me gis fingertipps to hold,
the sixth would be my own,
the sewenth gave me red gold,
the ninth lay on my arm,
the tenth was ever cold,
the elewenth was my husband
as was the twelwth.
Twelve good boys,
The selfsame twelve boys
who were good, fresh and free of mind.
