Szöveg / Lyrics

Széna, széna, széna terem a réten,
Még annál is több szeretőm van nékem,
Irigylik a leánykori életem,
Irigylik, hogy szép szeretőm van nékem.

Összefolyik a Tisza a Dunával,
Összeillik a szőke a barnával,
Mert a barna tud igazán szeretni,
De a szőke hamar el tud feledni.

Hay, hay, hay grows in the field,
I have even more lovers than that,
I am envied for my girlhood life,
I am envied for my nice lover.

The Tisza flows into the Duna,
Blonds match brunettes,
Because brunettes can truly love,
But blonds can forget quickly.
