Common lyrics of Tak sa mi videlo with an English translation

Tak sa mi videlo,
So it seemed to me

že hory horeli,
that the woods were burning

a to sa milému
when, in fact, it was my dear

líčka červeneli.
blushing, his cheeks red.

Tak sa mi videlo,
So it seemed to me

že na horách blýska,
that there are lightnings in the hills

a to si môj milý
When, in fact, it was my dear

na píšťalke píska.
playing his flute.

Na píšťalke píska,
Playing his flute

na drombli drombľuje,
playing his mouth harp,

a to všetko preto,
and doing all of that

lebo ma miluje.
because he loves me
