Ha kimegyek arr’ a magos tetőre, 'If I go up to the high mountains' (1907) BB47


Part of a series or song cycle:

8 Hungarian Folksongs (BB47)


Ha kimegyek arr’ a magos tetőre, 'If I go up to the high mountains'

Ha kimegyek arr’ a magos tetőre
Találok én szeretőre kettőre.
Ej, baj, baj, baj, de nagy baj,
Hogy a babám szive olyan mint a vaj!
Nem kell nekem sem a kettő, sem az egy,
Azt szeretem, aki eddig szeretett.
Ej, baj, baj, baj, de nagy baj,
Hogy a babám szive olyan mint a vaj!

If I go up to the high mountains

If I go up to the high mountains
I will find a sweetheart, maybe two. .
Trouble, trouble, what a lot of trouble,
That my darling’s heart is as soft as butter.
But I don’t want either the one or two;
I want the one I love who also loves me.
Trouble, trouble, what a lot of trouble,
That my darling’s heart is as soft as butter.
