Reidi, Reidi, Geili

Lyrics - Pennsylvania German

(Pennsylvania German folk song)

Reidi, reidi, Geili!
Alle Schtund e Meili,
Geht’s iwwer der Schtumbe,
Fallt’s Bobbli nunner!

Reidi, reidi, Geili!
Alle Schtund e Meili,
Noh griege ner noch en Geili,
Un gehne noch e Meili.

Reidi, reidi, Geili!
Alle Schtund e Meili,
Ich kann nimmi weider geh,
Ich muss e Weili bleiwe.

English Translation – Ride, ride, horse

Ride, ride, horse!
Every hour a little mile,
When it goes over the stump,
The baby falls down!

Ride, ride, horse!
Every hour a little mile,
Then we’ll get still another little horse
And go another little mile.

Ride, ride, horse!
Every hour a little mile,
I can’t go any further,
I have to stay for a little while.
