Arról alúl

Language: Hungarian (Magyar)

Arról alúl kéken béborult az ég, 
Az én babám most irja bús levelét!
Irjad babám, ird meg bús soraidat,
Hadd tudjam meg, mihez tartsam magamat?
Hadd tudjam meg, hogy megvársz-e engemet,
Örömmel töltsem el a három évet.
Kitöltöttem három évet, ha napot,
Kapitány úr, szalutálni nem fogok!
Szalutáljon az a bundás regruta,
Kinek hátra harminchat kis hónapja.

Under the blue sky

Language: English after the Hungarian (Magyar)

 Under the blue sky the clouds disappeared.
 My darling is writing her sad letter!
 Darling, do write your sad, sensitive feelings,
 Let me know what my chances are...
 Please, let me know if you will wait for me.
 I would want to be happy for the next three years.
 After I completed the three years,
 Captain, sir! I will not salute you.
 Let the rookie do the saluting
 Who has months ahead of servitude.
