lyrics

// Čerešničky, čerešničky, čerešně,
   vy ste sa ně rozsypaly na cestě. //
// Kdo vás najde, ten vás posbírá?
   Já som mala včéra večér frajíra. //

// Bol to šohaj malovaný, jak růža,
   teho sem si vyvolila za muža. //
// Ani bych mu robit nedala,
   len by som ho jako růžu chovala. //

// Jako růžu, jako růžu červenú,
   ja bych bola jeho ženů milenů. //
// Ja bych bola jeho lalija,
   a on moja růža, růža červená. //

Translation:
Cherries, cherries, cherries,
you scattered on the road.
Who will find you, will gather you up?
I was with my boyfriend yesterday evening.

He was a good-looking man, like a rose,
that I choose to marry.
I wouldn’t let him work.
Only like a rose would I take care of him.

Like a rose, like a red rose,
I would be his beloved wife.
I would be his lily,
and he would be my rose, my red rose.
