    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!

Árva az a madár,
Kinek párja nincsen,
Én is árva vagyok,
Jaj, de nekem sincsen.

Sír az egyik szemem,
Sírjon a másik is,
Sírjon mind a kettő,
Mint a záporeső.

Adta Isten volna,
Ne láttalak volna,
Híremet híreddel
Ne hírelték volna.

Nevemet neveddel
Ne nevezték volna,
Így az én bús szívem
Mély gyászba nem volna.


Lonely is the bird
That has no mate,
I am lonely as well,
I don't have one either.

One of my eyes is crying,
Let the other one cry too,
Let them both cry
Like a rainshower.

God should have made it so
That I wouldn't have seen you,
The word about me wouldn't have gone
Along with the word about you.

My name wouldn't have been named
Along with your name,
So that now my gloomy heart
Wouldn't be in deep mourning.
