Merchant, Give Me the Colour (Carmina Burana) [ Chramer, gip die varwe mir ]

English translation

Merchant, Give Me the Colour (Carmina Burana)

Merchant, give me the colour
to redden my cheeks ,
so that I may make young men love me,
whether they wish it or not.
Look at me, young men!
Let me please you!
 
Give your love, virtuous men,
to lovely women!
Love gives you high spirits,
and lets you shine in high honour.
Look at me, young men!
Let me please you!
 
O World, I wish you well,
as you are so rich in pleasures.
I will surely always be your servant,
on account of your bounty.
Look at me, young men!
Let me please you!
