Dadde drunne in dem Wald,
Dadde schpiggelt sich en Fisch;
Un siss em Meedel liewer,
Ass es Gold uff em Disch.

Fal de rieha zieha zieha,
Fal de rieha zieha zieha,
Sing fal de ral!

Ich hab Arrebse geblanst,
Un hab Linse geseet,
Un hab die Meed
Imme Ring rumm gedreet.

Fal de rieha zieha zieha,
Fal de rieha zieha zieha,
Sing fal de ral!

Fal de rieha zieha zieha,
Fal de rieha zieha zieha,
Sing fal de ral!

Way down yonder in the woods,
There’s the flashing of a fish,
Which the girl would rather have
Than the gold in the dish.

Fal de re-a ze-a ze-a,
Fal de re-a ze-a ze-a,
Sing fal de ral.

I have planted all the peas,
And the lentils I have sown,
And I’ve turned around the girls
Until dizzy I have grown.

Fal de re-a ze-a ze-a,
Fal de re-a ze-a ze-a,
Sing fal de ral!

Fal de re-a ze-a ze-a,
Fal de re-a ze-a ze-a,
Sing fal de ral!
