Winds of May, that dance on the sea

Language: English

Winds of May, that dance on the sea, 
Dancing a ring-around in glee 
From furrow to furrow, while overhead 
The foam flies up to be garlanded, 
In silvery arches spanning the air, 
Saw you my true love anywhere? 
		 Welladay! Welladay! 
		 For the winds of May! 
  Love is unhappy when love is away!

Majowy wiatr

Language: Polish (Polski) after the English

Majowy wiatr nad morzem tan'czy tam,
tan'czy tak w krag radosny tan.
I z falina falę wydyma w górę
łuk girlandę wodnych pian
fontanny wodnych srebrzystych pian.
Czyście wy fale widziały ją?
Gdzieżeś ty? Gdzieżeś ty?
Ulatujesz w dal!
Miłośc' ulata zatrzymaj więc ją!
