Hé, zigeuner, sla nu maar de snaren aan!
Speel het lied van ’t meisje dat haar vriend liet staan!
Laat de snaren huilen, klagen, droeve zangen,
Tot de hete tranen stromen van mijn wangen!

Torenhoge Rimastroom,
Hoe kom je zo triest;
Aan de oever roep ik
Luid om jou, mijn lief!
 
Golven vluchten, golven stromen,
Naad’ren mij op ‘t strand met luid misbaar.
Op de Rimaoever laat mij
Eeuwig huilen om haar!

Raad, wanneer mijn blondje het allermooiste is:
Als haar lieve mondje kirt en lacht en kust.
Meisje fijn, jij bent mijn, dus krijg jij ‘n kus van mij,
Ja, jou schiep de lieve hemel enkel maar voor mij!
 
Weet dat ‘k van mijn liefste ’t allermeeste houd,
Als hij in zijn armen mij vast omstrengeld houdt.
Schatje fijn, jij bent mijn, dus krijg jij ‘n kus van mij,
Ja, jou schiep de lieve hemel enkel maar voor mij!

Lieve God, u weet hoe vaak ik dacht aan straf,
Daar ik aan mijn liefste eens een kusje gaf.
’t Hart gebood dat ik hem kuste toen;
‘k Denk, zolang ik leef, steeds aan die eerste zoen.
 
Lieve God, u weet, hoe vaak in stille nacht
Ik met lust en leed heb aan mijn schat gedacht.
Liefd’ is zoet, zij ’t bitter het berouw,
’t Arme hart, dat blijft hem eeuwig, eeuwig trouw.

‘n Bruine jongen voert ten dans daar
Zijn blauwogig bloedmooi kind;
Slaat de sporen ferm tezamen,
‘t Csardasdansorkest begint.
 
Kust en klemt zijn zoete duifje,
Draait haar, leidt haar, juicht en springt;
Werpt drie blanke zilv’ren guldens
Op het cimbel, dat het klinkt.

Roosjes, drie ja in een rijtje, bloeien rood,
Dat een joch naar ’t meisje gaat, geen die ’t verbood!
Lieve God, zou dat verboden zijn,
Dan zou onze aard’ al lang verdwenen zijn;
‘Geen vriendin’ zou zonde zijn!
 
’t Mooiste stadje in Alföld is Kecskemét,
Daar vind je veel jonge meisjes, knap en net!
Vrienden, zoek je daar een lieve bruid,
Vraag haar om haar hand en sticht je eigen huis,
Drink de vreugdebeker uit.

Denk je weleens daaraan terug, mijn zoete lief,
Wat je eens met heil’ge eed mij hebt beloofd?
Bedrieg1 me niet, verlaat me niet,
Jij weet niet, hoe ik jou vereer,
Houd van mij, als ik van jou,
Dan stroomt Gods genade op je neer.

Hoor, de wind klaagt in de takken, treurig, zacht;
Lieve schat, wij moeten scheiden: goede nacht!
Ach, hoe gaarne in je armen lag ik trouw,
Maar het uur van scheiden komt, God hoede jou.
 
Donker is de nacht, geen sterretje men ziet;
Lieve schat, vertrouw op God en schrei maar niet;
Brengt de lieve God mij eens bij jou terug,
Dan zijn eeuwig wij vereend in diep geluk.

Wijd en zijd kijkt niemand mij aan,
En als ze mij haten, gaat dat mij aan?
Slechts mijn schat, die moet mij minnen wel altijd,
Moet mij kussen, omarmen en koest’ren in eeuwigheid.
 
Geen ster straalt in duistere nacht;
En mij streelt geen bloem met geurende pracht.
Maar jouw ogen zijn mij bloemen, ster meteen,
Helder lichtend, zo vriend’lijk, die bloeien voor mij alleen.

De1 maan verhult haar aangezicht,
Lieve schat, jij wordt niet beticht.
Wild’ ik jou door toorn benauwen,
Zeg: hoe kon ‘k van jou dan houen?
 
Vuur voor jou in ‘t hart mij vlamt,
Maar mijn tong is als verlamd,
Soms in liefdesroes uitzinnig,
Soms als duifjes zacht en innig.
