lyrics

Svieti miesac, sveti miesac nad našim humiénkem.
Stoji šuhaj, stoji šuhaj pod našim okiénkem,
// stoji prežalostně na mňa volá,
“Otvoržie mi, otvoržie mi frajeročka moja.” //

“A ja by si, a ja by si dvérka otvorela
keby moja, keby moja mamka dovolela
// Ale moja mamka nedovolí
že ty neny, že ty neny šuhaj mojej vody.” //

Svieti miesac, sveti miesac nad našim humiénkem.
Stoji šuhaj, stoji šuhaj pod našim okiénkem,
// stoji prežalostně na mňa volá,
“Otvoržie mi, otvoržie mi frajeročka moja.” //

Translation:
The moon is shining over the meadow.*
My sweetheart is standing by my window,
// standing in despair and calling,
“Open for me, my dear.” //

“I would open the door for you
if only my mom would let me.
// She doesn’t let me
because you are not good [wealthy] enough for me.” //

The moon is shining over the meadow.
My sweetheart is standing by my window,
// standing in despair and calling,
“Open for me, my dear.” //

*Humiénko translates as any piece of land directly outside the farm walls (orchard, meadow, garden, etc.).
