Latvian folk song (latviešu tautasdziesma) Vilki “Cīrulīti mazputniņi”


Little Skylark, don’t sleep sleep by the road Do not sleep by the roadside Strict lords will ride past tomorrow, trampling your nest They will stomp your hatchlings Trampling your nest and placing you in their carriage will place you in their carriage Placing you in their carriage and taking you to German lands taking you to German lands Taking you to the German lands, there they’ll make you drive to the forest there they’ll make you drive to the forest There they’ll make you drive to the forest, where they’ll make you chop wood they’ll make you chop wood When you’ve chopped wood, they’ll make you light the forge they’ll make you light the forge Once you’ve lit the forge, you’ll forge armour then you’ll forge armour Once you’ve forged your armour, they’ll make you go to war Then you will go to war
