The Count
Heidelberg's dance of death, Count

Death to The Count

Her grofe heist euch den keiser helfen
Ich brenge euch hie czu wilden welfen
Mit den ir must tanczen yagen
Der tot wil euch des nicht vortragen
Mr. Count, ask the emperor to help you.
I bring you here to wild wolves
with which you must dance [and] hunt.
Death will not spare you for this.
 
Ich was yn der werlde genant
Eyn edler grofe dem reyche bekant
Nw byn ich von dem tode gefelt
Vnd hie yn seynen tancz geczelt
In the world I was called
a noble count - renowned in the empire.
Now I'm felled by Death
and counted here in his dance.
