Pierścień

Language: Polish

Smutno niańki ci śpiewały,
A ja już kochałem,
A na lewy palecmały
Srebrny pierścień dałem.

Pobrali dziewczęta drudzy, 
Ja wiernie kochałem,
Przyszedł młody chłopiec cudzy,
Choć ja pierścień dałem.

Muzykantów zaproszono,
Na godach śpiewałem!
Innego zostałaś żoną,
Ja zawsze kochałem.

Dziś dziewczęta mnie wyśmiały,
Gorzko zapłakałem:
Próżnom wierny był i stały,
Próżno pierścień dałem.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
