Summary - A love song in which the bard is praising the girl who looks after the goats. He says that she is his love and his darling and he says that there is no one who can compare with her when she goes to a ball. He also says that there is not a man in Europe who wouldn't be impressed by her.

At the end of the song the girl says that she would never marry a man who was not kind and that she would only have a nobleman that wouldn't cause her distress.
