Hoera! Viva! Mestreech!!!!!
(hurray, viva, Maasticht)
Jao diech hbs us aon 't hart gelege
(Yes you have been in our heart)
Mestreech, door alle ieuwe heer.
(Maastricht, troughout all the ages)
Veer bleve diech altied genege
(We will always stay kind to you
en deilde dreufheid en plezeer.
(and share sadness and pleasure)
Veer huurde naor dien aw histories
(We listend to your old stories)
te peerd op grampeer ziene sjoet.
(horssitting at granddad's knees)
Eus ouge blnke bij dien glories,
(our eyes shone at your glories
of perelde bij diene noet.
(or were pears at your distress)
En dee van diech 't sjoens welt prijze
(and who wants to praise your beauty)
In taol, die al wie zinge klink,
(in language that sounds like singing)
tot dee op nui Mestreechter wijze
(till he, in a new Maastricht manner)
zien aaid Mestreech met us bezingk.
(celebrateshis old Maastricht with us)
Me zong vaan diech ten alle tije,
(one has song about you always)
us mooiers znge bij de weeg,
(our mothers song at the craddle)
en voolte veer us rech tevreie,
(and when we felt satisfied)
daan zong ze e leedsje vaan Mestreech.
(then they song a song about Maastricht)
Doe, blom vaan Nederlands landouwe,
(You, fower of dutch agriculture)
gegreuid op 't graaf vaan Sintervaos,
(grown at Servaas his grave)
bis weerdig dbbel te besjouwe,
(deserve it to be regared double)
gespiegeld in de blaanke Maos.
(mirrored in the white Maas)
'n Staar, de witste oet de klaore,
(a star, the whites our of the clearness)
besjijnt diech met hr straole zach
(shines on you with soft beams)
en um diech zuver te bewaore,
(and to preserve you pure)
'nen ingel helt bij diech de wach.
(an angel guard you)
Wie dks woorste neet priesgegeve,
mr heels dien kroen toch opgeriech
(how many times you were given away)
en ongeknak biste gebleve,
(and unbroken you prevailed)
door euze band vaan trw aon diech
(trough our bond of trust to you)
Daorum de hand us touwgestke,
(therefore a hand offered to us)
't oug geriech op, 't stareleech;
(the eyes facing the light od the star)
En weurt dat oug daan ins gebroke,
(and if the eye gets broken once)
daan beijt veur us 't aaid Mestreech
(then old Maastricht prayes for us)
