OriginalTraduzione inglese di Joseph Ezust da Recmusic - The Lied, Art...
Arról alúl kéken béborult az ég,Under the blue sky the clouds disappeared.
Az én babám most irja bús levelét!My darling is writing her sad letter!
Irjad babám, ird meg bús soraidat,Darling, do write your sad, sensitive feelings,
Hadd tudjam meg, mihez tartsam magamat?Let me know what my chances are...
Hadd tudjam meg, hogy megvársz-e engemet,Please, let me know if you will wait for me.
Örömmel töltsem el a három évet.I would want to be happy for the next three years.
Kitöltöttem három évet, ha napot,After I completed the three years,
Kapitány úr, szalutálni nem fogok!Captain, sir! I will not salute you.
Szalutáljon az a bundás regruta,Let the rookie do the saluting
Kinek hátra harminchat kis hónapja.Who has months ahead of servitude.
