Es was einmal ein stoltzer Knab,
  der saget seinem bulen ab/
  klopff wer da wöll,
  ich armer gsell/
  bulschafft die ist mir vil zuschwer/
  mir wurd zuletzt mein Seckel leer.

Once there was a proud youth,
   who sent away his lower /
   knock, who will,
   I poor youth /
   Loving goes too hard on me/
   My purse is empty at last.
