Herr Mannelig

Once in the early morning before sun rise
Before the dawn chorus sounded
The mountain troll woman proposed to a knight
She spoke with a forked tongue

Knight Mannelig, Knight Mannelig
Please marry me
For I can give you everything
Your answer can only be "yes" or "no"
If you want it that way

I will give you twelve fine mares
Which are grazing in the shady grove
They have never felt a saddle
Never a bridle

I will give you twelve mills
Situated between Tillö and Ternö
The mill stones have the finest red gleam
And the wheels are made of silver

I will give you a golden sword
Which sounds with 15 gold rings
And in battles fights as you wish
On the battle field you will be victorious

I will give you a shirt, so new
The most beautiful that you have every seen
Not sewn with needle and thread
Crocheted from the finest white silk

Gifts such as these I would love to accept
If you were a Christian woman
But you are an evil mountain troll woman
From the species of the water trolls and the devil

The mountain troll ran out through the door
She walled and wept loudly
If I had got the handsome man
I would be freed from my pain

Knight Mannelig, Knight Mannelig
Please marry me
For I can give you everything
Your answer can only be "yes" or "no"
If you want it that way
