The song Szomorú Vasárnap (Gloomy Sunday) was composed by Rezso Seress and published as sheet music in late 1933, with lyrics by poet László Jávor, who was inspired by a recent break-up with his lover.  

"On a sad Sunday with a hundred white flowers, I awaited for you my dear with a church prayer. That dream chasing Sunday morning. The chariot of my sadness returned without you.

Ever since then, Sundays are always sad, tears are my drink; bread is my sorrow... Sad Sunday.
Last Sunday dear please come along. There will even be priest, coffin, catafalque, hearse-cloth. Even then flowers will be awaiting you. Flowers and coffin under blossoming (flowering in Hungarian) trees my journey shall be the last. My eyes will be open, so that I can see you one more time. Don't be frightened from my eyes as I'm blessing you even in my death... Last Sunday."
