Ne menj el!

Language: Hungarian (Magyar)

Ne menj el, el ne menj,
Ne hagyjál itt engem!
Mert ha itt hagysz engem,
Bánatos lesz lelkem.
Bánatos lélekkel,
Szomorodott szívvel,
Egyedül hogy legyek,
Nálad nélkül éljek?
Világon míg élek,
Soha nem felejtlek,
Visszajössz, vissza még,
S velem maradsz mindég.

Don't go

Language: English after the Hungarian (Magyar)

Don’t go, don’t go away,
Don’t leave me here!
Because if you leave me here,
My soul will turn sorrowful.
With a sorrowful soul,
With a saddened heart,
Alone how shall I be,
Live without you?
Till I live on this world,
I will never forget you.
You will come back once
And stay with me forever.
