lyrics

To ta Heľpa, to ta Heľpa, to je pekné mesto.
A v tej Heľpe, a v tej Heľpe, švárnych chlapcov je sto.
// Koho je sto, toho je sto nie po mojej vôli.
   Len za jedným, len za jedným srdiečko ma bolí. //

Za Janíčkom, za Pavlíčkom, krok by nespravila.
Za Ďuríčkom, za Ringíčkom, Dunaj preskočila.
// Dunaj, Dunaj, Dunaj, Dunaj, aj to širé pole,
   Len za jedným, len za jedným, počešenie moje. //

Translation:
This Hel’pa is a nice town.
And in Hel’pa there are a hundred handsome boys.
This hundred, that hundred are not to my liking.
Only for one, only for one does my heart ache.

For John, for Paul, I wouldn’t take a single step.
For George, for Ringo, I’d jump over the Danube.
Danube, Danube, Danube, Danube, and also a wide field,
only for one, only for one, my darling.
