Lettering

Tod zum Narren. Wohlauf Henne du must jetzt springen, schürtze dich auf und lass dir lingen: dein Kolben magst jetzt wohl lan bleiben, mein Tantz wird dir den Schweiss austreiben. Antwort des Narren. O weh ich wollt gern Holtz auftragen, und alle Tag viermahl werden g'schlagen: vom Herren mein und seinen Knechten, so muss ich mit dem Dürrling fechten.
