Puelle saltanti imperavit mater: nil aliud petas nisi caput Ioannis baptiste; et contristatus est rex propter iusiurandum et propter simul discumbentes.
Domine mi rex, da mihi in disco caput Ioannis baptiste; et contristatus est rex propter iusiurandum et propter simul discumbentes. (Partially based on Mark, Chapter 6)

Her mother instructed the dancing girl: ask for nothing else but the head of John the Baptist; and the king was sorry because of his oath, and because of those that were with him at table.
My lord king, give me on a plate the head of John the Baptist; and the king was sorry because of his oath, and because of those that were with him at table.
