Szla dzieweczka

I was wondering if someone would be so kind as to provide an English translation to the lyrics of the folk song "Szla Dzieweczka." I've been searching the internet for one, but have not had much luck. Thanks in advance!!!

Something like 'the lass has gone'?

this is the Polish version (or one of them)

tekst piosenki Szła dzieweczka - Biesiadne

Szła dzieweczka

Szła dzieweczka do laseczka
Do zielonego, do zielonego, do zielonego.
Napotkała myśliweczka
Bardzo szwarnego, bardzo szwarnego, bardzo szwarnego.

Gdzie jest ta ulica, gdzie jest ten dom
Gdzie jest ta dziewczyna co kocham ją?
Znalazłem ulicę, znalazłem dom,
Znalazłem dziewczynę co kocham ją.

O mój miły myśliweczku, bardzom ci rada,
Dałabym ci chleba z masłem, alem już zjadła,
Alem już zjadła, alem już zjadła.

Gdzie jest ta ulica.....

Jakżes zjadła tożes zjadła,
To mi się nie chwal (3x)
Jakbym znalazł kawał kija,
Tobym cię wyprał (3x)

Gdzie jest ta ulica...

I can provide the translation later, but maybe there is a good soul who would do it now:)

Here's a Japanese version, it only goes to prove if you search hard enough you'll find it.

English translation to the lyrics of the folk song "Szla Dzieweczka

A girl was walking to a (small) forest, green forest
She met a hunter, very nice one

Where's that street, where's that house
where's that girl I love

Hunter, my love, I'm glad to see you ??? (not sure how to translate 'bardzom ci rada')
I'd give you bread with butter but I have eaten it

Where's that street...

If you have eaten it, it's been eaten so stop bragging,
If I had a piece of stick, I'd beat you

Where's that street, where's that house
where's that girl I love,
I found the street, I found the house
I found the girl I love

One of my favorite songs that the 'harcerki' my daughter belongs to sing. Especially like the chorus.
