Original text and translations

Hungarian.png Hungarian text

Madárka, madárka,
Csácsogó madárka,
Vidd el a levelem, vidd el a levelem,
Szép magyar hazámba.

Ha kérdi, ki küldte,
Mondjad hogy az küldte,
Kinek bánatában, szive fájdalmában,
Meghasad a szive.

English.png English translation

Sweet little bird,
Twittering little bird,
Take this letter of mine
Home to my beloved Hungary.

If they ask who sent you,
Say that it was one
Who is living in despair,
Whose heart is truly broken.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
