Csillagbökös ég tetején

Csillagbökös ég tetején,
Vándorol a gondolat,
Ökrök útján bandukolva,
Fütyülgetem nótámat.
A szekerek nyöszörögnek,
Tócsát vágva eldöcögnek,
És ha enged a kocsis,
Felülök jómagam is.
 
Szalmát gyűrök fejem alá,
Hanyatt fekve pihenek,
Csillagbökös ég tetején,
Az Úr csalt el engemet.
Behívott a kocsmájába,
Borral kínált literszámra,
Itatnak az angyalok,
Látják, hogy zsivány vagyok.
 
Hej! Ha elmesélném nektek,
Mennyi fele jártam én,
Oly sok mindent hoztam-vittem,
Tarisznyámnak fenekén.
Ingem ujját felgyürkőzöm,
Poharamat csurig töltöm,
Mert ha fenn a menny dalol,
Nótázik lenn a pokol.

High in the star peppered sky

High in the star peppered sky
A thought is wandering
I'm sauntering in the trail of oxen
Casually whispering my melody
The carts are groaning
They're carving puddles as they waddle forward
And if the driver lets me
I'll take a seat too
 
I'm tucking hay under my head
And I rest on my back
High in the star peppered sky
The Lord has lured me away
He invited me to his pub
He offered me wine by the liter
The angels are getting me drinks
They see, that I'm an outlaw
 
Hej! If I would tell you
How many places I've been to
I've carried and brought so many things
At the bottom of my haversack1
I'm rolling up the sleeves of my shirt
I fill my glass to the brim
Because when the heaven is caroling up above
Hell is singing down below
