8 Chansons polonaises (FP69)

Jezioro – Le lac

O jezioro, jezioro:
Bystra woda w tobie jest.
Wionku z maryjonku,
Na głowie mi więdniejesz.
Jakże ja nie mam więdnieć?
Gdy już nie jestem cały.
Zielone listeczki,
Modre fijołecki
Ze mnie już opadają.

The Lake

O lake, lake:
Fast waters flow through you.
Marjoram head wreath,
You wilt on my head.
How can I not wilt?
I am no longer intact.
Green leaves,
blue violets
Keep falling from me.
