Haggard – Herr Mannelig lyrics

All'alba, prima che il sole sorgesse
E gli uccelli cantassero la canzone
La donna del troll con lingua falsa
Ed ingannevole propose al signore:
Herr Mannelig, Herr Mannelig mi vorrai sposare
Per tutto quello che io dolcemente ti darò?
Se vorrai, rispondi solo si o no
Farai così o no?
Ti darò I dodici mulini
Che stanno tra Tillo e Terno
Le macine sono fatte del più rosso rame
E le ruote sono cariche d'argento
Herr Mannelig, Herr Mannelig mi vorrai sposare
Per tutto quello che io ti darò?
Se vorrai, rispondi solo si o no
Farai così o no?
Se tu fossi una donna cristiana
Riceverei volentieri regali cos,
Ma io so che sei il peggiore troll
Figlio degli spiriti maligni.
Herr Mannelig, Herr Mannelig mi vorrai sposare
Per tutto quello che io dolcemente ti darò?
Se vorrai, rispondi solo si o no
Farai così o no?
[Music: Traditional / Lyrics: A. Nasseri]

    It is of a mountain troll who proposes marriage to a young and handsome knight. She offers him many gifts for the acceptance, however, Herr Mannelig refuses, citing that were she a Christian woman he would gladly accept. But because she is a mountain troll (an evil creature) he refuses. As he departs, she laments that had he accepted, she would have been freed from her torment-potentially a curse.
