"....Marta's Song is about a girl, who cries that she has a big sorrow, which is that three units of red ribbon do not fit her. The Csángó people used a long ribbon as a belt, which was whipped round them three times .The girls used a red ribbon. So what happens if someone can't whip round her three times? She does not fit her belt anymore, because... there is something wrong with her.
The young csángó girls get this ribbon at a very young age, and always use the same length for a new ribbon, when they decide to change.

We know that the girl is young because she does not recognize her problem correctly, and she is afraid to tell her mother her problem, this is why she does not know her "problem". ....."

The Csángó speak an archaic form of the Hungarian language, which is used only (and only) by them at this moment. This song is sung in this archaic language....."
