Pożegnanie – L’Adieu

Widzisz dziewczę choragiewkę,
Co przy mojej lancy drży?
Zaśpiewam ci o niej śpiewkę,
Ona piekna tak jak ty.
Nie płacz luba, bywaj zdrowa,
Łzy na cięższe zostaw dnie:
Co Bóg sadzi, bywaj zdrowa,
Może wrócę, może nie.


Girl, do you see the standard,
Trembling on my lance?
I will sing you a song about her,
She is as beautiful as you.
Do not cry my dear, keep well,
Save your tears for worse times:
Let God’s will be done, keep well,
I may come back, I may not.
