Alright, #FolkloreThursday, here we go.
*cracks knuckles*
Horrible Hungarian Nursery Rhymes. A thread.
1.
Fly away, ladybug,
The Turks are coming
They will put you in a well of salt
And take you out
Put you under a wheel
And take you out
The Turks are coming
They will shoot you dead!

2.
Stork, dear stork
Why is your leg bloody?
Turkish child cut it
Hungarian child is healing it
With whistles and drums and fiddle
[At this point I apologize to all my Turkish friends]

3.
Snail, snail, come out
Your house is on fire
You'll get milk and butter,
There will be leftovers for tomorrow,
Snail, snail, put out your horns
If you don't, I'll crush your house

4.
Little squirrel, little squirrel
Went up a tree
It fell down and broke its leg.
Doctor, doctor,
Don't heal the squirrel
It's mischievous and it'll go up the tree again.

5.
Come out, Sun,
Oh, bright Sun,
In the garden the geese are freezing.

6.
It is too cold in the winter
It is too hot in the summer
The weather is never good
It is always raining
[This one is a folk song]

7.
Cow, cow, spotted cow
doesn't have ears or tail
We'll go to live where we can get milk
[According to a wild theory this was an educational rhyme for young men, see if you can figure out the hidden meaning...]
