Here is the English Translation of The Hunyak's spoken lamentations in The Cell Block Tango:

What I am doing here? They say, that the famous lakem kept down my husband and I stoke off his head. But this is not true, I am guiltless. I dont know why Uncle Sam says that I did it. I tried to explain at the police station but they didn't understand me...

Does anyone know in the US what Hungarian sounds like? Cause in the movie it sounded like a bad Russian accent (a Russian actress being hired makes me wonder why). I know that for many people it doesn't make a difference, and it doesn't bother me, I'm just asking.

the actress is russian, but she is speaking hungarian which is why the accent is muddled. the hungarian language is quite unique and the accent is similar to most eastern europeans but not exactly the same as anything else.

It means "Why have Uncle Sam locked me in jail?"

Trust me, I'm a Hungarian

Note: no such word exist in Hungarian as "lakem", but the context gives it away as lover. There are also a few spelling errors in the Hungarian lyrics but I guess, that won't bother you.

~ Well I'd say that Josh is correct in his translation. The only name she says is Sam, referring to Uncle sam. She doesn't say her lovers name.
Another thing, not all of them were married to the men they killed. Annie never said that she married Ezekiel just that they had shacked up.

Hold up, "Josh's" translation can't be right!!!

When she says the word "Roberto" thats the person she killed. (either her husband or boyfriend, I really dont know)

Josh didn't include that guys name in his translation.

DOES ANYONE KNOW THE REAL TRANSLATION!?!?!

She doesn't say "Roberto" -- she says something like "muertodo," which I'm guessing is "murder" in whatever language is being spoken. It certainly would be the right root word (muerta, murder, etc.).

you people are ametures   Saturday, October 18, 2003 (7:03 a.m.) 

The real translation:

"What am I doing here? They say my famous lover held down my husband while I cut off his head. But this isn't true! I am guiltless! I don't know why Uncle Sam thinks I did it. I tried to explain at the police station but they didn't understand me."

Josh did have it right.

Point one: She says "Roberto."
Explanation: Ummm...No she doesn't. Her speech consists of:
Mit kersek, en itt? Azt mondjok,hogy a hires lakem lefogta a ferjemet en meg lecsaptam a fejet. De nem igaz, en artatlan
vagyok. Nem tudom mert mondja Uncle Sam hogy en tettem. probaltam
a rendorsegen megmayarazni de nem ertettek meg...
The word you're looking at is "Probaltam." This roughly translates to "To Explain."

Point two: "It's her husband. Six MARRIED murderesses."
Explanation: Once again. wrong He says, "And now, the six merry murderesses of the Cook County Jail, in their rendition of the Cell Block Tango."

You guys are pretty dumb, ya know?

Shut the [bleep!] up, dumb[bleep!]. Who gives a damn if the person couldn't spell amateur? You didn't capitalize your "I" and you didn't capitalize, add a period AND a comma to "(Correct spelling, by the way.), if you want to be a [bleep!]ing grammar nazi. You're just a piece of [bleep!] who feels the need to belittle those that are trying to make a point with some minute garbage that I'm sure no one cared about EXCEPT you. Get. A. [bleep!]ing. Life.

Does anyone know the exact translation of the word megmagyarázni,
since "magyar" means "hungarian" in hungarian, I thought it maybe meant something like it??
thanks

ooh that's interesting I never thought of "Magyar" being in "magyarazni". it means to explain. I speak Hungarian so you can take my word for it.

let me tell you that every performance of this, even in the movie and Broadway shows, is absolutely abominable. it took me three years to figure out that it was actually my language the woman was speaking. I'm not kidding.

I literally have tried every translator I could find to get this. I am so glad somebody finaly could tell me what the real translation was. I just wish I could memorize that part now.

I have looked up on the internet and I have seen the word "lankem" in the same place as "tenant" and "lover" so that one seems a bit confusing. I think it's not likely to be tenant.

I do! i typed in the russian into a translator and it came up with this:

Mit kersek, en itt? Azt mondjok, hogy a hires lakem lefogta a ferjemet en meg lecsaptam a fejet. De nem igaz, en artatlan vagyok. Nem tudom mert mondja Uncle
Sam hogy en tettem. probaltam a rendorsegen megmayarazni de nem ertettek meg...

What am I doing here? They say the famous valet held my husband while I hit his head.

But it's not true, I'm inocent. I don't know why uncle Sam would say I did it. I tried to explain it to the police, but they didn't understand.

Something along that line...
Hope this helps

Hi! i dunno if anyone still reads this posting session, i was just looking for the translation and everyone's been really helpful.
I'm definitely sure it's correct cuz there's hungarians on here who've helped-it just confuses me that in the film June (i think it is) says "yeah...but did you do it?" which doesn't make sense because Hunyak's speech said she didn't.
UNLESS they didn't understand what she was actually saying. yeah i think i might have automatically answered my own question lol
