lyrics

The Linden

On the yonder side of the lake
Grows a green lime tree.
On that lime tree, the green lime tree,
Three birdies are singing.

Those were not three birdies,
Those were three brothers.
They were talking about a girl,
Who was going to get her.

One said, "You are mine!"
Another said, "God will decide!"
And the third said, "My sweetheart,
why are you so sad?"

Sad is all I can be,
For they want me to marry an old man!
There is not much time left,
Two more weeks I can spend with you, my love!



Lipka

Z tamtej strony jeziora
Stoi lipka zielona
A na tej lipce, na tej zieloniutkiej
Trzej ptaszkowie śpiewają

Nie byli to ptaszkowie
Tylko trzej braciszkowie
Co się spierali o jedną dziewczynę
Który ci ją dostanie

Jeden mówi: "Tyś moja"
Drugi mówi: "Jak Bóg da"
A trzeci mówi: "Moja najmilejsza,
Czemuś żeś mi tak smutna?"

"Jakże nie mam smutna być?
Za starego każą iść
Czasu tak niewiele
Jeszcze dwie niedziele mogę miły z Tobą być!"
