Herr Mannelig (English translation)

English translation

Herr Mannelig

At dawn before the sun arose
And the birds sang their song
The woman of the troll with the false tongue
And deceptive voice proposed a gentleman
 
Herr Mannelig, Herr Mannelig will you want to marry me
For all that I will give you?
If you want to, just say yes or no
Will you do it or not?
 
I will give you the twelve mills
That are between Tillo and Terno
The grinders are made of the most red copper
And the wheels are loaded with silver
 
Herr Mannelig, Herr Mannelig will you want to marry me
For all that I will give you?
If you want to, just say yes or no
Will you do it or not?
 
If you were a Christian woman
I would gladly receive gifts
But I know that you are the worst troll
Son of the malignant spirits
 
Herr Mannelig, Herr Mannelig will you want to marry me
For all that I will give you?
If you want to, just say yes or no
Will you do it or not?

Per tutto quello che io dolcemente ti darè? -> Per tutto quello che io ti darò?

Ma io so che sei il peggiore troll della montagna -> Ma io so che sei il peggiore troll
