Sunday songs: Mare and Lembit singing Estonian songs



Happy 75th Birthday Mare!

Some of the lyrics of the first estonian song in the video are in english below:

A single rider by Peeter Tooma

1. 
           A single rider arrived into our town
           on the dusky road by evening shadows
           What did he want?  Where was he going?
           Nobody knew
           We barely noticed him
           He seemed so calm and mild
           but then he took with himself the prettiest maiden of the town
          on her wedding night.

Refrain:
        Softly, softly the song is sounding again
        feelings so great, so clear and so real
        you cannot deceive and these never lie.
        
        feelings so great, so clear and so real
        you cannot deceive and these never lie.

2. 
        The marriage was celebrated in a joyful mood
        glasses were lifted for the honour of the bridal couple,
        the party continued so dashingly and joyfully
        the sound of songs becoming louder
        nobody noticed what happened this dark night
        only at the break of a new day it became clear that
        the bride had left with the stranger.
