Sárközi Tánc - Dance from Sarkö
Phantom Ranch
Kispiricsen hires kislány vagyok én.
Tizennyoic szél rokolyában jároken.
Reng is a föld amerre én eljárok.
Legény legyen kivel beszédbe állok.

Jaj de szépen ragyognak a csillagok
Mikor rózsám tehozzád el ballogok.
Annyi csókot viszek hozzád estére
Mind belefér a két orcád egyszerre.

Nincsen anny tenger csillag az égen
Valahányszor esembe jutsz énnékem.
Az erdő sem zöld a levele nélkű
Gyonge szivem soha sincs nálad nélkűl.
I am a well-known girl of Kispiricsen.
I have eighteen petticoats.
Whenever I walk the earth trembles.
Whoever stops to talk with me must be a real man.

How beautifully the stars twinkle
Whenever I walk to your house, my rose.
I will give you as many kisses as
Your face can hold.

There are not as many stars in the sky
As the number of times I think of you.
The forest can't be green without its leaves
And my poor heart can't be without you.

Four Balkan Dancers
