lyrics

// Chodila dievčina po hore plačúci. //
// Postretla čipkára, hej, čo čipky predáva. //

// “Čipkáru, čipkáru, pre živého boha, //
// či mi je čipôčka, hej, na čepiec hotová?” //

// “Hotová, hotová, ale ju nenesiem. //
// Budeš, dievča, čakať, hej, až na druhú jeseň.” //

// “Nebudem, nebudem do jeseni čakať, //
// zunovalo sa mi, hej, moje vlásky česať. //

// Moje vlásky česať, vrkoče zaplietať. //
// Nebudem, nebudem, hej, do jeseni čakať.” //

Translation:
A girl was crying, walking over the mountain.
She met a lacer [lace maker] who was selling laces.

“Lacer, lacer, for living god [for God’s sake],
is the lace on my cap finished?”

“It’s finished, it’s finished, but I do not have it.
You, girl, must wait until the second autumn.”

“I will not, I will not wait until autumn.
It [pronoun unclear] started boring and teasing my hair.

Teasing my hair, raveling my braids.
I will not, I will not wait until autumn.”
