I am looking for the lyrics in Hungarian of "Three Hungarian Folk Songs" from Bela Bartok.

1 – "In the village"
2 – "Boatman! Boatman"
3 – "See the roses".

Could you help me please?

Thanks a lot.

Hi,

I used to sing all these songs, but unfortunately I should type them from my old songbook, that's the one I found:

this is the boatman's lyric:

Haj révész révész magyar ifjú révész!
Vígy által a nagy hajón
Uramról maradt hajadon lyányom
Azt is neked adom.
Az kell kedvemnek szép szerelmemnek
Öröm a szívemnek.

Gyüjj be janyám gyüjj be fond be a hajamat
Ötösbe hatosba
ötösbe hatosba arany hajfonóba.
Ha most nem fonod, többé be nem fonod
Ötösbe hatosba
Ötösbe hatosba arany hajfonóba.

Could you please send the English version, it would help me to recognize them, though these lyrics are very archaic, and usually they are translated into standard English whic is very far from the original content!

Thank you so much!

Unfortunately, I have no words of the songs in English.

I found these Hungarian words (attachment).
