Latvian folksong text
4 | Ziemassvētki naudu skaita4 | Christmas is Counting Money
"Ziemassvētki naudu skaita
Ledus kalna galiņā.
Es gribēju klātu tikti
Ar nekaltu kumeliņ'.
Christmas is counting money
On top of an icy mountain.
I wanted to get up close
On an unshod horse.
Kam tie tādi melli zirgi
Pie manāmi rij's durvīm?
Ziemassvētku kumeliņi
Veda rudzus klētiņā.
Whose are the black horses
At my threshing barn's door?
The fine horses of Christmas
Have brought me rye.
