The Miller's Bold Daughter (continued) by Wilhelm Busch


Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3


 


Jetzt aber naht mit kühnem Schritte
Voll Goldbegierigkeit der dritte.


Now, dauntlessly and full of greed,
The third one nears to do his deed.


Schnapp! - ist der Hals ihm eingeklommen;
Er stirbt, weil ihm die Luft benommen.


His neck is caught. A bad surprise!
Bereft of air to breathe, he dies.


So starben die drei ganz unverhofft.
O Jüngling! Da schau her!
So bringt ein einzig Mädchen oft
Drei Männer ins Malheur!!!


They perished quite unexpectedly;
Remember, lad, when wooing:
One single maid will often be
Three hapless men's undoing.
