I think this is the only Plattdeutsch song that I found all by myself in a charming little song book, namely An de Eck steiht'n Jung mit'n Tüdelband. The song is Platt version of the better known traditional "Es waren zwei Königskinder". It's a sad little piece of lovers being treacherously dealt with by the evils of this world and are only united in death.
I first heard the High German version "Es waren zwei Königskinder" sung by the King's Singers on their LP "Die King's Singers singen deutsche Volkslieder" sometime in the late 1970's.
