Asszony, asszony, ki az ágyból! (1924)

Asszony, asszony, ki az ágyból!

Asszony, asszony, ki az ágyból!
Most jövök a korcsomából,
Tálat, csuprot, fazekakat
Miń fejedre borogatom.
Ember, ember, ki a házból!
Most jövök a fonóházból.
Guzsaly talpa a fejedbe,
Orsó hegye a szemedbe!

Woman, woman, out of your bed!

Woman, woman, out of your bed!
I’m back from the drinking party!
Up, or bowls, jars and pots
I shall let fly at your head!
Husband, husband, out of this house!
I’m back from the spinning house.
Out, or you’ll have a distaff in your head
And a spindle in your eye!
