Chorus - repeat 4 more times.
  My love listened to the evil tongues,
And filled her black, black eyes with tears.
 
This world is a very worthless thing,
I wanted to get away, to get away and to forget.
 
        Chorus:
        Spring, spring, it's spring,
        Lovely, lovely, it's lovely.
        With those black, black eyes,
        My love, you burn me.
 
From this love of yours, I am lost, can't sleep,
I cry out in tears all night long.
 
My love, don't turn away from me; I love you.
The passers-by think I want love.
 
Chorus - repeat 4 more times.

Chorus
  From the beginning of the world, such is a woman.
On the head of a man she always brings punishment.
 
        Chorus:
        Yippee ahhhhhhhhh.....
        Woman, woman, such is a woman.
        On the head of a man she always brings punishment.
 
There’s no closed door for a woman.
For every door she has a key, a woman does.
 
Chorus
 
She, a satan, in a snake’s shirt,
Poor Adam she misled with an apple, the woman Eve did.

  Pretty girl, pretty love, come, come, take my soul.
 
Without you I can’t be, wherever you go take me with you.
 
Take me with you, oh sweet one, even if it's for ten years.
 
You are a sugar, my sweet one, let me kiss your feet.
 
If only I were with you, I'd even stay under your wall.
 
If I could kiss you once, I'd even give my life.
