Mei Mueter mag mi net
Mei Mueter mag mi net,
Und kein Schatz han i net,
Ei warum sterb' i net,
Was tu i do?
Gestern isch Kirchweih g'wä,
Mi hot mer g'wis net g'seh,
Denn mir isch's gar so weh,
I tanz ja net.
Laßt die drei Rose stehn,
Die an dem Kreuzle blühn:
Hent ihr das Mädle kennt,
Die drunter liegt?
