lyrics

// Čerešeň, čerešeň, hej želená čerešeň, //
   čija že ja budzem, hejahoj, nevesta na ješeň,
Bože moj?

// Sama ja še, sama, hej do ľubeňa dala, //
   teraz tak banujem, hejahoj, až me boli hlava,
Bože moj.

// Vyšla ja na skalu, hej, chcela ja še zabic, //
   aľe mi bulo žaľ, hejahoj, frajira zochabic,
Bože moj.

Translation:
Cherry tree, cherry tree, hey green cherry tree,
whose bride will I be, hey ho, in the autumn,
my God?

I (myself), hey, fell into love,
and now I regret it so much, hey ho, that my head aches,
my God.

I climbed on the top of the rock [cliff], hey, wanted to kill myself,
but I was sorry, hey ho, to leave my boyfriend behind,
my God.
