LatvianEdit

Gatavs biju karavīrs
Gatavs kara kumeliņš

Tās dieniņas vien gaidīju
Kad zīlīte ziņu dev'

Pa vārtiem izjādams
Rīksti dūru pavārtē

Ja tā auga, ja zaļoja
Gaidat mani pārejot

Ja neauga, nezaļoja
Negaidati, nepārieš'

Uz kariņu aiziedams
Krustu cirtu ozolā

Lai neraud tēvs, māmiņa
Lai raud krusta ozoliņš

English TranslationEdit

Ready was the warrior
Ready was the war horse

I waited for the sign
That would come from the titmouse

Riding out the gate
I stuck the rod beneath it

If it grows, if it blossoms
Wait for my return

If it doesn't grow or blossom
Wait for me no longer

When I went off to war
Cut a cross into the oak

Don't cry father, mother
Let the cross cry in the oak
