  Ach alter mann was sächstu an/
  khrest wie ein Han/
  und wilt nur dran/
  magst nit bestahn/
  es ist gethon/
  laß nur davon/
  deins gsunds verschon,
  laß nur davon/
  deins gsunds verschon/
  dann kein Doctor dir helffen kan.

 Oh, old man, what are you waiting for,
  Standing there Crying like a Rooster.
  Tarrying about it
  If you can't get it to stand,
  it is done.
  Just leave.
  Spare your health,
  there is no doctor who can help you.
