Es war einmal ein Jäger (English translation)

English translation

Once upon a time there was a hunter

Once upon a time there was a hunter
Heili-heilo, a hunter
He said to his wife:
"I'm going out into the woods now
And look for fox and rabbits
But you know exactly:
 
In life, in life
If some shot goes wrong
We think, but we steer
The others are your fate
In life, in life
Not everything is there
And that's why
Man needs a bit of luck in life
 
He met a girl in the woods
Heili-heilo, a girl
The girl cried so
"Come with me to my hunting ground
In the green moss, I sing to you
A song that makes you happy"
 
In life, in life
If some shot goes wrong
We think, but we steer
The others are your fate
In life, in life
Not everything is there
And that's why
Man needs a bit of luck in life
 
So came the wild hunter
Heili-heilo, the hunter
Home at midnight
There sat the woman and sang a song
In the arms of Oberförster Schmidt
And laughed at him
 
In life, in life
If some shot goes wrong
We think, but we steer
The others are your fate
In life, in life
Not everything is there
And that's why
Man needs a bit of luck in life
