LYRICS

// Mé zlaté Dolanské louký,
Vy jste mé těšívaly. //
// Když jste mé potěšit měly,
Vy jste mě zarmoutily. //

// Včera kdyý padala rosa
A bledý měsc vysě, //
// Travou jsem chodila bosa.
Mů mily za jinou šel. //
      Oh, my golden Dolany meadows,
you used to please me so.
But when you should have brought me pleasure
you brought me only grief.

Yesterday, when the dew was fallin
and a pale moon rose,
I walked barefoot through the grass.
My darling went to see another girl.
