Parti Nagy Lajos: The lovely creature (A szép teremtés in English)

Portre of Parti Nagy Lajos

Back to the translator

A szép teremtés (Hungarian)

Egy szép teremtés ment a buszon át
a cekkerében fagyos hús volt,
és azzal verte halkan az urát
egy szép teremtés ment a buszon át.

A húsiparba nem kell annyi jég,
ez a dolog is annyira sokkolt,
mennyivel jobb is a békesség,
a húsiparba nem kell annyi jég.

Egy szép teremtés ment a húsipar,
kicsontozódunk mindannyian,
s ami maradna, egy cekkernyi lé,

odacsorog a lábaid elé.
Iparkodunk. De hát ezért, uram?
Szép egy teremtés. Mint a húsipar.

The lovely creature (English)

A lovely creation walked along the tram,
with a shopping bag full of frozen meat
with which she quietly beats up her man
a lovely creature walked along the tram.

The meat industry doesn’t use so much ice,
that’s another thing that really shocked me,
and how much better is a little peace,
the meat industry doesn’t use so much ice.

A lovely creature in the meat industry,
each one of us finally ends up boned,
and what would be left: a shopping bag of juice,

which trickles down in front of your shoes.
We’re industrious. My man, to what end?
Lovely creature. Like the meat industry.
