ɲɛvandruj miliː mɔj ɲɛvandruj saːm
Don’t you travel, my dear, don’t you travel alone,

Mrchou kamarátou na ťebe znám,

I hear that your friends want to hurt you.

Budeš sa jim brániť, zabijú ťä,

You’ll try to fight them, they’ll kill you

Budeš sa jim brániť valaškami,

You’ll fight them with your sheperd’s axe

Ale ťä porúbu šabličkami.
alɛ cɛ pɔruːbu ʃablitʃkami
But they’ll take you down with their swords.
