I was hoping you can please help me. My grandmother used to sing me a Hungarian song when i was little. From what i remember it was about a truck of chickens, that were falling from the truck LOL
I know my spelling is way off but here it goes….

Debrecenbe kéne menni,
pulykakakast kéne venni.
Vigyázz kocsis, lyukas a kas,
kiugrik a pulykakakas!

Csip-csip csóka, vakvarjúcska,
Komámasszony kéreti a szekerét,
Nem adhatom oda,
Tyúkok ülnek rajta,

My Auntie Olgica, who is now 98 years old says she remembers her older brother Laci singing her a song about turkeys falling out a hole i a cage on a truck. Please help me find a copy of the original song.
Thank you for all you do.

The song can be found in the comments above. Here’s a longer version with a video:
Debrecenbe kéne menni,
pulyka-kakast kéne venni!
Vigyáz kocsis, lyukas a kas,
kiugrik a pulyka-kakas!
Debrecenben csoda esett,
két kis kakas összeveszett.
Én a kakasom nem bánom,
csak a tyúkomat sajnálom.

Katalin Szvorak has a CD at Amazon of Hungarian Folk Songs for children. Vekony cerna komenymag, translated as “Thin thread, caraway seed” tickles me. It’s a wedding song! She sings in Hungarian but most of the titles are translated into English. She has 9 Karacsony dalok -Christmas songs. Erdojaroznak a lanyok (game song)is translated as Madis are dancing to roundelay but I woder if it isn’t Ring-a-round the rosie.
