Burns, Robert: A Bottle And Friend

Portre of Burns, Robert

A Bottle And Friend (English)

There's nane that's blest of human kind,
But the cheerful and the gay, man,
Fal, la, la, &c.

Here's a bottle and an honest friend!
What wad ye wish for mair, man?
Wha kens, before his life may end,
What his share may be o' care, man?

Then catch the moments as they fly,
And use them as ye ought, man:
Believe me, happiness is shy,
And comes not aye when sought, man.

Egy üveg s egy barát (Hungarian)

Az emberiség egyike sem áldott,
De a derűs és a meleg, ember,
Fal, la, la, &c.

Itt egy üveg s egy igaz barát!
Mi többet kívánsz te, ember?
Ki tudja, hogy mielőtt élte lejár,
mi lessz a jussa, tán érdekel?

Minden röpke pillanatot csípj el,
és használd ahogy kell, ember:
Az öröm félénk, nekem hidd el
s nehezen jön, ha kéred, ember.
