LatvianEdit

Apkārt kalnu gāju
Kalniņā uzkāpu
Ieraudzīju meitenīti
Gauži raudājot

Ko tu meitiņ raudi
Ko tu sērojiesi?
Kā bij' manim neraudāti
Bāliņš karā iet

Karā bij' man ieti
Karā nepalikt
Karā bija grūta dzīve
Tēva dēliņam

Salti vētji pūta
Bargi kungi sūta
Svešajā zemītē
Jūras līkumos

Apkārt kalnu gāju
Kalniņā uzkāpu
Ieraudzīju meitenīti
Gauži raudājot

English translationEdit

Around the hill I went
When I climbed up to the top
I saw a little girl
Crying

Why are you crying, little girl?
Why such sorrow?
How can I not cry?
My brother goes to war

I had to go to war
I didn't want to stay
War was full of hardship
For the father's son

Cold winds blew
Grim warlords sent me
Into strange lands
Over distant seas

Around the hill I went
When I climbed up to the top
I saw a little girl
Crying
