Smith, Stevie: Emlékszem (I Remember in Hungarian)

Portre of Smith, Stevie
Portre of Gergely Ágnes

Back to the translator

I Remember (English)

It was my bridal night I remember,

An old man of seventy-three

I lay with my young bride in my arms,

A girl with t.b.

It was wartime, and overhead

The Germans were making a particularly heavy raid on Hampstead.

What rendered the confusion worse, perversely

Our bombers had chosen that moment to set out for Germany.

Harry, do they ever collide?

I do not think it has ever happened,

Oh my bride, my bride.

Emlékszem (Hungarian)

Nászéjszakám volt, emlékszem,

hetvenes öregúr, azám,

karomban ifjú hitvesem

egy tébécés leány.

Kinn háború, fejünk felett

a németek különösen súlyos légicsatában támadták Hampsteadet.

Ami fokozta a zűrzavart eleinte,

bombázóink pontosan ugyanakkor indultak Berlinbe.

Összeütköznek, Harry? Én nem hiszem,

hogy ilyesmi valaha is történt,

ó, hitvesem, hitvesem.
