  O Wee, o wee mir armen mann/
  hab nehren zvil getruncken/
  o wee das ichs nit lassen kan/
  mein hirn ist mir gesuncken/
  es laufft als umb/
  bin thol und thumb,
   mein sinn seind mir geschwechet/
  das gsicht ver kert/
  das es nit hört/
  ich hab ubermaß zechet.
  O wee, o wee, ich kan nit gehn/
  wie ist mir doch geschehen/
  kan auch nit auff den füssen stehn/
  wie hab ich uber sehen/
  ich geh im schwanck/
  fall auff die banck/
  o wee, ich kan nit sitzen/
  der magen quilt/
  ist uberfült/
  der wein,
  der wein wil von mir schwitzen.

English.png English translation

   Woe, Woe, I poor man/
   I have drunk altogether to much/
   Woe, why couldn't I leave it/
   my brain is fallen in/
   my mind runs in circles/
   I am dull and silly,
   and all my senses are reduced/
   I can't see clearly/
    and I can't hear/
   I have drunk to much.
   Woe, Woe, I can not walk/
   how did this happen/
   Can not stand on my feet /
   how did I miss this comming/
   I can't walk stright/
   and stumbel on the bench/
   Woe, I can not sit/
   my stomach is queasy/
   it's overfull/
   the wine,
   the wine will sweat from me.
