Vékony cérna, kemény mag

Language: Hungarian (Magyar)

Vékony cérna, kemény mag,
Jaj, de kevé' legény vagy!
Fûnek-fának adós vagy,
Egy pénznek ura nem vagy.

Ne bánd édes virágom,
Hogy így élem világom!
Éljed téses nem bánom,
Szívemből azt kévánom.

Félre tőlem búbánat,
Nem élek én több nyárot,
Ha érek es, csak hármot,
Nem rakok én kõvárot.

B. Bartók sets stanza 1 in (at least) one setting - see below for more information
