Brettl Lieder Brettl Songs


Mind, my girl, don’t you be frivolous,
Don’t catch yourself a fancy-man,
Find yourself a proper man;
One whose kisses will be tireless,
Who with manual strength and zest
Will build for you a cosy nest.

Now, my girl, don’t you be silly,
Don’t walk round as in a dream.
One might be coming (look around)
Who would just suit you to the ground.
If he comes, act willy-nilly,
Snap him up! Yes, that’s the scheme.

My Girl, make best use of your time,
Take action now while in your prime,
Take care and know, to wit,
That if without a plan you flit
Aimlessly through life,
You’ll be a spinster, not a wife.
