Nдr jag var ung, lekte jag kull,
Med Esmeralda fцr lekens skull.
Men sе en dag nдr jag tog henne fatt,
Mдrke jag till min fцrvеning att;
Kдrlekens lеga brann I min sjдl.
Dдr svann min ungdom, adjц och farvдl.

Nдr vi blev дldre sцp jag dig full.
Min Esmeralda, fцr kдrlekens skull.
Du bjцd mig in till din kammare fin.
Du bjцd pе saft, jag bjцd pе gin.
Kдrleken tдndes av olika skдl.
Dдr svann din oskuld, adjц och farvдl.

Kдrleken varade inte sеklart.
Jag var fцrhдxad men du var smart.
Du sеg dig kring nдr jag var I trans.
Du gjorde slut per korrespondans.
"Han дr den rдtte", skrev du, falske dam.
"Vi skall fцrlova oss! Puss och kram."

Vidare skrev du, "allt дr fцrbi".
"Du har fцrlorat min sympati,
Fortsдtt du leva I slarv och misдr,
Min nyblivne fдstman дr halvmiljonдr.
Дkta passion har han skдnkt mig ocksе,
Sе stick du och gцm dig, fridens dе."

Liksom en herdinna med dimmig blick,
Var Esmeralda I avklдtt skick.
Jag sеg nдr jag stal hennes ros, sе jag vet.
Dе var hon smal, men nu дr hon fet.
Fцrr var hon ivrig, men nu дr hon slц.
Tur att det blev som det blev, adjц.
