Fyre, fyre!
My heart! My heart!
Fa la la la la la
O, help! O, help! Alas, O, help!
Ay me! Ay me!
I sit and cry me,
and call for help,
alas, but none comes nigh me.
Fa la la la la la.

German.png German translation

Feuer! Feuer! Wild entflammt
brennt mein Herz. So helft! Ach, helft!
Weh mir, ich trage alle Qualen und suche Rettung,
doch niemand steht mir bei.
Ich verbrenne! Erbarmen!
Weh mir, ich verglühe!
Wer eilt herbei und löscht den Brand?
Schöpft Wasser aus den Fluten
und schwemmt mein Leid davon.
