Here’s a translation we found on the web:

Are you a tulip? Are you a hyacinth?

Why did you haste ,young man,and you fell asleep,
that way you didn’t see what a wonder passed by
Is it a tulip you are, is it a hyacinth, is it a rose!
What passed by was up to three young shepherds:
The first one is carrying а streaky lamb for them to slaughter
The second one is carrying some sparkling wine for them to drink
the third one is carrying a copper pipe to play on
As that’s not enough what passed by further was up to three maidens of beauty
The first one is carrying a cubit of white silk
The second one is carrying a motley distaff for her to spin
The third one is carrying streaky frame for her to sеw on.
Wake up, drive the sleep away, mister,
and come on their working-bee party

The Bulgarian lyrics:

Lale li si Zumbiul li si

Лале ли си, зюмбюл ли си
Що побърза млад челеби, та заспа,
та не виде какво чудо помина,
лале ли си, зюмбюл ли си, гюл ли си!
Поминаха дор три млади уфчеря:
първи носи шаро агне да коли,
втори носи руйно вино да пият,
трети носи медян кавал да свири.
Че минаха дор три моми хубави:
първа носи аршин бяла коприна,
втора носи пъстра хурка да преде,
третя носи шарен гергеф да шие.
Събуди се, разсъни се, челеби,
че да дойдеш на тяхната седянка!



written by Eddie Cooley, John Davenport (Otis Blackwell)

Never know how much I love you
Never know how much I care
When you put your arms around me
I get a fever that’s so hard to bear
You give me fever,

when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
in the mornin’, a fever all through the night

Sun lights up the day time
Moon lights up the night
I light up when you call my name
And you know I’m gonna treat you right
You give me fever,

when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
in the mornin’
A fever all through the night

Everybody’s got the fever
That is somethin’ you all know
Fever isn’t such a new thing
Fever started a long ago

Romeo loved Juliet
Juliet she felt the same
When he put his arms around her
He said, “Julie baby you’re my flame”
Thou givest fever

when we kisseth
Fever with thy flaming youth
I’m on fire
Fever yeah I burn forsooth

Captain Smith and Pocahontas
Had a very mad affair
When her daddy tried to kill him
She said, “Daddy oh don’t you dare”
He gives me fever

with his kisses
Fever when he holds me tight
I’m his missus
And daddy won’t you treat him right?

Now you’ve listened to my story
Here’s the point that I have made
Chicks were born to give you fever
Be it fahrenheit or centigrade
They give you fever

when we kiss them
Fever if you live you learn
till you sizzle
Oh what a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn

Beautiful Love

Beautiful Love

Lyrics Haven Gillespie

Beautiful love
You are a mystery
Beautiful love
What have you done to me
I was content till you came along
Thrilling me with your song.

Beautiful love
I’ve ruined your paradise
Searching for my dream to realize
Reaching for heaven depending on you
Beautiful love
Will my dreams come true.
