Śliczny Chłopiec

Language: Polish

Wzniosły, smukły i młody,
O! nielada urody.
Śliczny chłopiec, czego chcieć?
Czarny wąsik, biała płeć!

Ledwie mrugnie oczyma,
Radość całą mnie ima.
Śliczny chłopiec, czego chcieć?
Czarny wąsik, biała płeć!

Gdy pląsamy we dwoje,
Patrzą na nas ócz roje.
Śliczny chłopiec, czego chcieć?
Czarny wąsik, biała płeć!

Niech się spóźni godzinę,
To mi tęskno, aż ginę.
Śliczny chłopiec, czego chcieć?
Czarny wąsik, biała płeć!

Każde słówko co powie
Lgnie mi w sercu i w głowie.
Śliczny chłopiec, czego chcieć?
Czarny wąsik, biała płeć!

On powiedział mi przecie,
Żem mu wszystkiem na świecie!
Śliczny chłopiec, czego chcieć?
Czarny wąsik, biała płeć!

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995.

Handsome lad

Language: English

 Young and tall and handsome,
 Oh, he's my choice and my liking!
 What more handsome would you seek?
 Raven hair and golden cheek!
 
 Just an eyelid's flicker
 Will make my heart beat quicker.
 What more handsome would you seek?
 Raven hair and golden cheek!
 
 When we're dancing together
 All eyes turn to us.
 What more handsome would you seek?
 Raven hair and golden cheek!
 
 Should he be late in coming
 My heart grows faint and numb in me.
 What more handsome would you seek?
 Raven hair and golden cheek!
 
 Every fond word he whispers
 In my ear, my heart remembers.
 What more handsome would you seek?
 Raven hair and golden cheek!
 
 He's already told me
 That I am all the world to him.
 What more handsome would you seek?
 Raven hair and golden cheek!
