My Heart by Ernő Szép

I'd like to give my heart away as a present
It always only brings me sadness anyway

I would like to sew it to a cripple's crutch
Under his arm it would be a soft pillow

They could cut my heart in two, to make
Red shoes for a little beggar girl

Or I'd give it to her grieving mother
It may be meat enough for one dinner
