Reide, reide, Geili
Alle Schtunn en Meili;
Geht’s iwwer der Schtumbe,
Fallt’s Bobbli nunner!

Reide, reide, Geili
Alle Schtunn en Meili;
Iwwer der Hiwwel geht es niwwer;
Bubbs geht’s nunner!

Reide, reide, Geili
Alle Schtunn en Meili;
Marriye welle mer Hawwer dresche,
Kann des Geili Hawwer fresse.

Ride and ride the pony a mile per hour only.
Jumps over the tree stump; down falls the baby!

Ride and ride the pony a mile per hour only.
Up over the hill, baby takes a spill!

Ride and ride the pony a mile per hour only.
Into the fields tomorrow morn, then, the pony can munch his corn!
