Polish lyrics:

Z tamtej strony jeziora
Stoi lipka zielona
A na tej lipie, na tej zieloniutkiej
Trzej ptaszkowie śpiewają

Nie byli to ptaszkowie
Tylko trzej braciszkowie
Co się spierali o jedną dziewczynę
Który ci ją dostanie

Jeden mówi: „Tyś moja”
Drugi mówi: „Jak Bóg da”
A trzeci mówi: „Moja najmilejsza,
Czemuś taka smutna?”

„Jakże nie mam smutna być?
Za starego każą iść
Czasu tak niewiele
Jeszcze dwie niedziele mogę miły z Tobą być!”

Z tamtej strony jeziora
Stoi lipka zielona
A na tej lipie, na tej zieloniutkiej
Trzej ptaszkowie śpiewają
