"We sang this song quite a lot." -Jack

Notes

(1) Jack wrote about line from Hungary: "I asked my mother, 'Világ' is a very old-fashioned word that could mean: light or candle... 'The light is burning'... 'The light is on in the shop', or maybe even better, 'The lantern is burning in the shop'…"
(2) "'Sallárom' is a non-sense Hungarian term. At least, for me. It's like 'Hey-hoo'." -Jack
(3) "'Biggyeszt' is quite onomatopoeic, but the meaning can be put across with 'Fixing'." -Jack

Comments

About Hungarian Names: In Hungarian, someone's full name is written with the last name then the first name, so in English, "Bíró Róza" becomes "Rosa Biro" and "Jacuts Pista" becomes "Pista (Stephen) Jacuts".
