A patron of ours is seeking an English translation of the Hungarian folksong En Csak azt Csodalom, aka "Lullaby for Catherine" used in the opening credits of *The English Patient. It is sung by Marta Sebasteyn. We've been all over the 'Net, and our own indexes and resources, with no luck. Can anybody here give us some help?

I can't even find the Hungarian lyrics!

Could only find this page – http://www.robotwisdom.com/jorn/marta.html – which has a link to lyrics for the song (scroll down to the "The English Patient" and you'll see it). Unfortunately, the link isn't working for me; maybe it'll work for someone else. Doesn't say there whether the lyrics are in Hungarian or English, but at least it's a place to start.

Thanks, Sorcha and SharonA. I did find that link, and it didn't work for me either! :-( At the moment, our catalog server is dead (Advanced death, they tell us) and I must wait to be able to locate our books of Hungarian folk songs.

These are the full lyrics of the song, but I think that only the first two verses are sung in "The English Patient".


Én csak azt csodálom
Meg nem hal bújába
Ki az õ édesét
Gyakran nem láthatja

Lám énaz enyémet
Csak máma nem láttam
Mégis az én szivem
Majd meghal bújában

Bújába nem másért
Csak a szerelemért
Csak a szerelemért
Szerelem kedviért

Elvágtam az ujjam
Holtig foly a vérem
Messze van édesem
Ki bekösse nékem

Messze van édesem
Ki bekösse nékem
Messze van édesen
Más ember kedvire

Elvátgam az ujjam
Holtig foly a vérem
Messze van édesem
Ki bekösse nékem

Messze van édesen
Más ember kedvire
Messze van édesem
Más néz a szemibe
