Hunt, Leigh: Rondeau (Rondeau in Hungarian)

Portre of Hunt, Leigh

Rondeau (English)

Jenny kissed me when we met,
Jumping from the chair she sat in;
Time, you thief, who love to get
Sweets in your list, put that in.
Say I’m weary, say I’m sad,
Say that health and wealth have missed me,
Say I’m growing old, but add,
Jenny kissed me.

Rondeau (Hungarian)

Jennykém puszit adott,
  Székiről ugorva fel;
Idő, te, ki ellopod
  Ami jó, nyeld ezt is el!
Mondd, életem csupa gond,
  Mondd, épségem s pénzem szinte semmi,
Mondd, hogy vénülök, de mondd:
  Megpuszilt a Jenny.
