Make no mistake little girl,
do not come to us.
By us there is a great river.
You will not be able to cross it.
I will make myself a big fish,
and I will cross the river,
and I will come to you.

Make no mistake little girl,
do not come to us.
By us there are lofty mountains.
You will not be able to cross them.
I will make myself a portridge,
and I will cross the mountains,
and I will come to you.

Make no mistake little girl,
do not come to us.
By us there is a cruel mother-in-law
You will not be able to live.
Cruel mother-in-law, good daughter-in-law,
we will get on the two together,
and two together we will live.
