Ain boer wol noar zien noaber tou (Dutch)

Today I started learning my children a song from the days of my grandfather, in a language that is mostly forgotten.

Ain boer wol noar zien noaber tou,
Hai, boer, hai,
Zien wief dat wol met hom goan,
Dom, dom, dom, dai.

Nee wief, doe most toeze bliev’n,
Hai, boer, hai,
Most spinn’n en naai’n, van
Dom, dom, dom, dai.

Dou boer weer in hoeze kwam,
Hai, boer, hai,
Zee,e: “Wief wat hestoe wel doan?”,
Dom, dom, dom, dai.

Maar ’t wief kreeg tou bèrestok,
Hai, boer, hai,
En sloug hom dou op zien kop,
Dom, dom, dom, dai.

En boer gong noar zien noaber kloag’n,
Hai, boer, hai,
“Mien wief het mie op kop sloag’n”
Dom, dom, dom, dai.

En noaber zee: “Net ziezo”
Hai, boer, hai,
“mien wief dei dut krek ziezo!”,
Dom, dom, dom, dai.
