2. Man tika pāri nodarīts,
3. Es pasteidzos, pasteidzos
4. Tad māti uzmeklēt tūlīt,
5. Lai ieķertos, ieķertos
6. Ar rokām viņas priekšautā,
7. Un māte man, māte man
8. Tad pasmējusies teica tā:

Paldies, kripata! Esi ljoti laipna..

I take the liberty of presenting my translation for the refrain and the second stanza of the song. Thank you for reviewing.

Refrain:
Dāvāja, dāvāja, dāvāja Māriņa
Meitenei, meitenei, meitenei mūžiņu,
Aizmirsa, aizmirsa, aizmirsa iedot vien
Meitenei, meitenei, meitenei laimīti.

Gave Māriņa
daughter(dative) life(accusative)
Forgot toGive her(genitive?)
daughter(dative) happiness(accusative).

Second Stanza

1. Tā gāja laiks, gāja laiks,
2. Un nu jau mātes līdzās nav.
3. Vien pašai man, pašai man
4. Ar visu jātiek galā jau,
5. Bet brīžos tais, brīžos tais,
6. Kad sirds smeldz sāpju rūgtumā,
7. Es pati sev, pati sev,
8. Tad pasmējusies saku tā:

1. Since then time passed,
2. And now already mother lives not.
3. Only ??? toMe....
4. With all must??? ??? ???
5. But in times those in times those
6. When (my)heart aches ??? ??? (here something like with bitter pain?)
7. I ??? toMyself ??? toMyself
8. Then smiling say this:

Even with the knowledge of the first two stanzas, the third part was particularly difficult. Thank you for you continued help and interest.

Flaminius

1. Kā aizmirsies, aizmirsies
2. Man viss jau dienu rūpestos!
3. Līdz piepeši, piepeši
4. No pārsteiguma satrūkstos,
5. Jo dzirdu es, dzirdu es,
6. Kā pati savā nodabā
7. Čukst klusiņām, klusiņām
8. Jau mana meita smaidot tā:


1. How I forgot, I forgot (past participle?)
2. I had all of days I tend
3. along bounce bounce???
4. With surprise I jumped?
5. As I hear, I hear
6. How ??? in her own way
7. Whisper(ed) quietly, quietly (what does ņām mean?)
8. My daughter smilingly thus:

Kripata, thank you very much. I edited the translation as below. For your information:

1. In childhood, childhood,
2. When I had something painful
3. I hurried, hurried
4. To look for mother at once,
5. To clutch, to clutch,
6. With my hands her apron,
7. And mother to me, mother to me
8. Then chuckling said:

refrain
1. Gave, gave, gave Māriņa
2. To girl, to girl, to girl life
3. Forgot, forgot, forgot only to give
4. To girl, to girl, to girl happiness.


1. Time passed, time passed since,
2. And mother is no longer beside.
3. Only single I, single I
4. Have to cope with everything now,
5. But in those moments, those moments,
6. When the heart aches with bitter pain,
7. I for myself, for myself,
8. Then chuckling say:


1. How forgotten, forgotten
2. Everything already in days' troubles!
3. Till suddenly, suddenly
4. I jump from surprise,
