    PAY AS YOU WANT: Imagine it as ONLINE BUSKING. If you heard me somewhere in the streets, singing these songs and you liked it, how much would you put into my hat? One Euro? Two? Five, ten? Or maybe more?
    Actually, I do sing in the streets! Yes, it is true. That is one of way of how I am supporting myself as an artist, so that I don´t need to do all those cleaning, etc jobs any more... And I love the freedom of buskers´ life, also the wonderful way of directly connecting with people.
    Here on this website, it is not only one short moment of a song, but you can have them with you wherever you are and listen to them as many times as you wish.
    Plus, you get bonuses: photos and other tracks.
    Determine how much you want to pay - no amount is too small or too big. When you click on BUY, simply enter the amount in the little pop-up Euro field.
    Choose the file format you prefer (MP3, or better sound quality lossless versions?), and proceed.
    You will receive the download link in email.
    Your contribution will help me to create more recordings and in a more professional quality, at beautiful locations. Also, it will make it possible for me to publish free content available for everyone. Great karma, the World will be grateful for your support!

Track Name: Nincsen a Világon


Nincsen a világon nagyobb szomorúság,
Mint kik összepárosodnak, s nem szeretik egymást,
Ha meg kell ölelje, karjait fájlalja,
Ha meg kell csókolja, bús könnyit hullatja.

Szeretlek, szeretlek, csak ne mondd senkinek,
Míg a templom földjén fektetve nem visznek,
Ne mondd meg anyádnak, hogy szeretlek téged,
Ne tudja meg senki, majd' meghalok érted.

Szerelem, szerelem, átkozott gyötrelem,
Mért nem virágoztál minden fa levelén,
Minden fa levelén, minden bokor alján,
Hogy szakisztott vóna rólad minden legény s lejány.

Mer' én szakisztottam, el is szalasztottam,
Szelíd galamb helyett vadgalambot fogtam,
Hej, de még szakisztanék, ha jóra találnék,
Ha jóra, ha szépre, régi szeret?mre.

Hej, de régi szeret?mért mit nem cselekedném,
Tengerb?l a vizet kanállal kimerném,
Tenger fenekér?l aprógyöngyöt szednék,
Abból a rózsámnak gyöngykoszorút kötnék.


There is no greater sadness in the world
Than when those get coupled who don't love each other,
If she has to hug him, she says her arms hurt,
If she has to kiss him, she sheds tears.

I love you, I love you, but tell it to no-one
Till they carry me laid out on the church's ground.
Don't tell it to your mother that I love you,
No-one should know that I'm dying for you.

Love, love, wretched anguish
Why didn't you blossom on the leaves of each tree
On the leaves of each tree, at the bottom of each bush,
So that every boy and girl could pick from you.

'Cause I've already picked one, but let him go,
Instead of a tame dove, I caught a wild one,
I would pick one again if I found a good one,
If a good one, if a nice one, my old flame.

What wouldn't I do for my old flame,
I would scoop the water out of the sea with a spoon,
From the sea bottom I would pick tiny pearls,
For my old flame I would bind a pearl-wreath.
