Give him a "(papír)zsebkendő", a "zsepi", a "pézsé" (P.Zs.) instead!

Két férfi tüsszent, aztán négy

A hetedik te magad légy

The second line is, "You yourself must be the seventh one." It's a repeating line in a famous poem by József Attila.

Oh, thanks. I looked up "magad" on szotar.net, and it said either "you" (or "yourself," I guess?), or "alone" ("by him/herself" - this was for "maga").

I think it will be a while before I can read that poem. :)

Sebő Ferenc has written and sung some beautiful music to poetry - this one isn't my favorite, though. But I appreciate the reference just the same!
