A. 067. The Beggar from Hungary


67. The Beggar from Hungary
(From: Lohsa)
Translated by Ed Bernthal

A beggar came here from Hungary
Ho ho ha ho ha hej!
A beggar came here from Hungary
Fidra fidrassa ssej.

He arrived at the first town
Ho ho ha ho ha hej!
He arrived at the first town.
Fidra fidrassa ssej!

Pleadingly he went into a hostel
Ho ho ha ho ha hej!
By a young lady, young and pretty
Fidra fidrassa ssej!

‘I will give you lodging
Ho ho ha ho ha hej!
My young husband is not here
Fidra fidrassa ssej!’

‘Throw your bag down under the bench
Ho ho ha ho ha hej!
Come I will put you to bed with me
Fidra fidrassa ssej!”

The young lady started to call out
Ho ho ha ho ha hej!
‘Get up, get up, my beggar man!
Fidra fidrassa ssej!’

‘Get yourself out of my house
Ho ho ha ho ha ssej!
My young husband is coming home
Fidra fidrassa ssej!’

The beggar took his sack
Ho ho ha ho ha ssej!
And immediately ran out of the house
Fidra fidrassa ssej!

He started to sing a happy song
Ho ho ha ho ha ssej!
A happy song he started to sing
Fidra fidrassa ssej!

“Whatever I might get begging for during the day
Ho ho ha ho ha ssej!
I squander it all at night
Fidra fidrassa ssej!”

“With such a pretty young lady
Ho ho ha ho ha ssej!
In such a nice and fine hostel
Fidra fidrassa ssej!”
