Notes

Here's another version of this song as sent and translated by Krisztina Pinter….

Boci, boci, tarka,
Se füle, sem farka,
Mégis olyan tarka
Mind a macska farka.

Cow, cow, motley cow,
No ears, no tail,
Though it is so motely
As the cat's tail.

Listen
Watch
Here's the version that's recited on the youtube...

Boci, boci megfázott,
Varrtam neki nadrágot,
Nem akarta felvenni,
Ágyba kellett fektetni.

English Translation:

Chilly*, chilly, cow, cow, cow,
I sewed her up some trousers
Not wanting at all to add
She had to be put to bed.

*Cold
