Olvad a hó, csárdás kis angyalom

Olvad a hó, csárdás kis angyalom, tavasz akar lenni,
De szeretnék kis kertedben rózsabimbó lenni! 14
Nem lehetek énrózsa, elhervaszt Ferenc Jóska 14
A nagy bécsi háromemeletes magos kaszár nyába. 16

Snow is melting

Snow is melting, oh my pretty little angel, spring is coming.
How I wish to be a rosebud in your garden!
But I can’t be a rose; Franz Joseph wilts me.
In the big three-story Viennese barracks.
