Fratricide

Where are you coming from,
my merry son?
I'm coming from the seashore,
my dear mother
 
What were you doing there,
my merry son?
I gave my horse some water,
my dear mother
 
Where have you gotten your boots muddy,
my merry son?
Well, I walked by the road,
my dear mother
 
Where have you gotten your sword bloody,
my merry son?
I killed my older brother,
my dear mother
 
What did you kill your brother for,
my merry son?
Why was he making my woman laugh,
my dear mother?
 
Where will you have to go now,
my merry son?
To other, foreign lands,
my dear mother
 
When will you come back from there,
my merry son?
When the stars dance on the sky,
my dear mother
 
When will the stars dance on the sky,
my merry son?
When a stone floats on water,
my dear mother
 
When will the stone float on water,
my merry son?
When a feather sinks,
my dear mother
 
When will the feather sink,
my merry son?
When we all will be judged in the end
