Túrót ëscik a cigány

Language: Hungarian (Magyar)

Túrót ëszik a cigány, duba,
Veszekëdik azután, lëba,
Még azt mondja pofon vág, duba,
Vágja biz a nagyapját, lëba.

Csipkefa bimbója
Kihajlott az útra
Rida, rida, bom, bom, bom.
Kihajlott az útra

Arra mënt Jánoska,
szakajt ëgygyet róla.

De zigeuner eet kwark

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the Hungarian (Magyar)

De zigeuner eet kwark, duba
Dan maakt hij ruzie, lëbe
Geeft een klap op je wang, duba
Een klap voor je opa, lëba

De knop van
een wilde roos
hangt boven
de stoep

Daar gaat Jantje
hij plukt de rozenknop.
