Translation:

My swift-moving little basket,
They couldn’t hear your sound
O woe is me, oh woe is me.
Against the roar of the waves
I am filled with grief
Oh woe is me, oh woe is me.
Your two little piercing eyes
Watching me through the opening
And I cannot reach you, and I cannot reach you.
The others are tending the sheep,
And I am tending the child
And I cannot reach you, and I cannot reach you.
