Translating a Hungarian Folk Song text  
by allisonita (UN), 2017-08-28, 23:42  Spam?  

I am a Canadian choral conductor, and I would like to program Zoltán Kodály's arrangement of the following text, but I would like to know what the text means before I present it to the choir. I've tried using online translators, but they don't really capture the correct syntax or grammatical structure, so I'm a bit confused. The text is as follows:

Még azt mondják: nem illik a tánc a magyarnak!
Nem, ha néki cipellőt, bőnadrágot varrnak.
De sarkantyús csizmának, kócsagtollas főnek,
illik gyöngyös pártának, magyar főkötőnek.

I would very much appreciate your input. Thanks!! :)
