Foaie verde viorea
(Green leaf of a violet)

Romanian

Foaie verde viorea
Spune-mi pui de turturea
Înghetata-i Dunarea
Sa treaca badea pe ea
Cu trei cai alaturea?
Unu-i rosu cum e focul
Si altu-i negru ca si corbul
Pe care-i badea calare
Pintenog la trei picioare
Hai, hai, bade, hai.
Green leaf of a violet
Come, turtle dove and tell me
Is the Danube frozen?
Can my true love ride across
With his three speedy horses?
One is black as a raven,
One is red as a furnace,
And the horse my love is riding
Has three feet of ivory.
