lyrics

Šest dní do týdňa, sedmá neděla.
Pověz, děvčico, čeho’s želela?
Želela sem já svých černých očí
že su nespaly po devět nocí.
Ešte by mohly po devět nespať
Dybych já mohla, synečku, dostať.
U súsedú dveří na vysokej veži,
nechod’ tam, synečku; už tam jiný leží.
U súsedú dveří na vysokém prahu,
nechod’ tam, synečku: Probijú ti hlavu.
Ani neprobijú, ani neporaňa.
Su tam hezké céry a ty ňa obraňa.
U súsedú majú mramorové schody.
Nechod’ tam, synečku, polámú ti nohy.
Ked’ mě jich polámú budu ňe jich hojit’.
Bude ňe má milá na zelinky chodit’.

Translation:
Six days into a week, seventh Sunday.
Tell me girl, what do you regret?
I regret my black eyes
Because they didn’t sleep for nine nights.
They don’t have to sleep for nine more
If I could get you, boy.
At the neighbor’s doors on the high tower,
don’t go there, boy; somebody else is lying there now.
At the neighbor’s doors at the high threshold,
don’t go there, boy: They will crack your head.
They won’t crack, nor will they hurt it.
There are pretty girls there and they will defend me.
At the neighbor’s they have a marble staircase.
Don’t go there, boy, they will break your legs.
If they break them, they will heal them.
My sweetheart will go cut the grass [to feed the animals].
