A fever flares up
in the blood of man,
warming the body,
refreshing the feelings,
when nimble fingers
of gypsy musician
running with passion
through thin strings,
and romance's sweet words
are following gently
the feet of beautiful dancer.

Inflamed finger picking
romantic music,
reflecting heroic
noise for a soldier,
no more disturbs
amorous thoughts!
Although he is tender,
and heartfelt in love, -
the soldier's impressed more
by glory of the heroes,
Eternal Glory!
