The Mosquito's Death

Hey, in a forest by a valley,
Misfortune has struck:
In the thick of the forest
Mosquitoes were swinging;

An oak bent to another,
And a mosquito fell down from that oak…
And as it fell from that oak,
Mosquito broke his head.

Mosquito broke his head
Against the oak’s bark.
Against the oak’s bark
Mosquito broke the back of his head.

Oh, Mosquito broke his sides
Against the oak’s boughs.
Oh, Mosquito broke his knees
Against the oak’s roots.

As the flies learned of what had happened,
They came flying to rescue Mosquito.
– Mosquito, our dear brother,
How do we save you?

– Send someone to the chemist’s shop,
I might get a little better…
– Mosquito, our dear brother,
How do we bury you?

– Don’t bury me by the road,
For they would stomp on my legs;
Don’t bury me by the valley,
For pigs would dig me up.

Bury me in the dark forest,
Under a green nut tree.
They will remember Mosquito
As they pick the nuts.



Kamarowa Śmierć

Hej, u lesie, pry dalinie,
U nas stałasia biada:
U dalinie, u huszczary,
Kałychalisia kamary;

Dub da duba pachiliusia,
Kamar z duba zawaliusia...
Ab dubowuju karu
Pabiu kamar haławu

Pabiu kamar haławu
Ab dubowuju karu
Pabiu kamar patylicu
Ab dubowu karanicu

Oj, pabiu kamar baki
Ab dubowyja suki
Oj, pabiu kamar kaleni
Ab dubowyja karenni!

A jak dali mucham znać,
Prylacieli ratawać:
- Kamaroczku, rodny bracie,
Jak-ża ciabie ratawaci?

- Pasyłajcie da apteki,
Ci nie budzie trochi lepiej...
- Kamaroczku, rodny bracie,
Jak-ża ciabie pachawaci?

- Nie chawajcie kraj darohi,
Bo dratawać buduć nohi;
Nie chawajcie kraj daliny,
Bo wyryjuć mianie świnni;

Pachawajcie u ciomnym lesie
Pry zialonieńkim aresie!
Buduć arechi szczypaci
Dy kamara uspaminaci.
