Marta's Song

"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 (and somewhere still use) a long ribbon as a belt, which was whipped round them three times (one round whipping was called "mérő", which also means unit os measure). 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."
