Polish lyrics:

Co wieczora tokaj piłem,
Moja ty, miła ty, dzieweczko ma!
I do rana się bawiłem,
Moja ty, miła ty, dzieweczko ma!
I choć w głowie tęgo zaszumiało,
Serce się do ciebie rwało.
Moja ty, miła ty, dzieweczko ma!

Wczoraj znowu tokaj piłem,
Moja ty, miła ty, dzieweczko ma
I do rana się bawiłem
Moja ty, miła ty, dzieweczko ma
Choć się głowa jak łan w polu chwieje
Moja ty, miła ty, dzieweczko ma
Do wieczora wytrzeźwieję
Moja ty, miła ty, dzieweczko ma

Potem przyjdę ja do ciebie,
Moja ty, miła ty, dzieweczko ma
A ty przyjmiesz mnie do siebie,
Moja ty, miła ty, dzieweczko ma
I choć z ust mych zapachnie ci wino,
Moja ty, miła ty, dzieweczko ma
Pocałujesz mnie, dziewczyno,
Moja ty, miła ty, dzieweczko ma
