The Archbishop
Heidelberg's dance of death, Archbishop

Death to The Archbishop

Seyt ir yn hoer wirde gesessen
Erczbyschoff des yst gar vorgessen
Euch kan gehelfen wedir creucze noch pfaffen
Ir must tanczen ouch mit desen affen
Were you seated in high worth,
Archbishop, it is totally forgotten.
Neither cross nor priests can help you.
You must also dance with these monkeys.
 
Ich trug mit hoer wirdikeit
Das creucze vor der pfafheit
Als eyn erczbyschoff das tragen sal
Nw gee ich an deser toten czal
I carried with high worthiness
the cross before the clergy
as an archbishop shall carry it.
Now I go to this number of dead.
