Common lyrics of Zahučali chladné vjetry v doline with an English translation
Zahučali chladné vjetry v doline,
The cold winds roar in the valley
vjadne kvítí v tej našej dedine,
and the flowers in our village wilt
Ej mamičko, dneska ja svadbu mám,
Oh, dear mother, it’s my wedding day
mamičko moja, dneska sa vydávam.
my dear mother, I am getting married today.
Zlubil sa mi prespolný šuhajíček,
I fancy a handsome fellow from another place
zarostá mne k vašemu chodníček,
and the path to your house is overgrowing
Ej mamičko, jak na vás spomenu,
Oh, dear mother, when I think of you,
mamičko moja, slzy mňa zalejú.
my dear mother, my eyes fill with tears.
Zahučali chladné vjetry.
The cold winds roar.
