Eens, zwee, drei, odder vier,
Meedli, wann du danse witt,
Dann dans mit mir!
Fimf, sex, siwwe, odder acht,
Meedli, wann du danse witt,
Dann dans in der Nacht!
Meedli so, Meedli so,
Wie die Buwe’s mache:
Wann sie gesse un gedrunke hen,
Gehne sie heem un lache!

One, two, three, or four,
Sweetheart, if you want to dance,
Then dance some more.
Five, six, seven, or eight,
Sweetheart, if you want to dance,
Then dance till late.
Sweetheart, my sweetheart,
You see only half:
When the boys have drunk their fill,
Then they go home and laugh.
