Rough English translation:

A boy went running

ran away

to the other side

He is one discouraged, giving up

It is scarred where he is wounded,

and his house came crumbling down

He got in the mood when they beat the drum

For Heaven's sake!

Boys are mischievous

they are fast runners

the days are so much longer

Then he found his weapon he'd lost

and came to his senses, came back.

He barely made it!

I know he understands my hardships,

and he knows me among the crowd

I was going to go with him, but I didn't.

While he runs away on the other side,

I will run away on this side.

He can go on and run,

I will go on and sing.
