STOJÍ HRUŠKA V ŠIRÉM POLI (Czech)
(Czech traditional song popularized by the Čechomor band.)

1. Stojí hruška v širém poli,
vrch se jí zelená.
Pod ní se pase kůň vraný,
drží ho má milá.
Pod ní se pase kůň vraný,
drží ho má milá.

2. Proč má milá dnes pasete,
zvečera do rána.
Kam můj milý pojedete,
já pojedu s váma.
Kam můj milý pojedete,
já pojedu s váma.

3. A já pojedu daleko,
přes hory hluboké.
Kéž sem byl nikdy nepoznal
panny černooké.
Kéž sem byl nikdy nepoznal
panny černooké.
A PEAR TREE STANDS IN A WIDE FIELD


1. A pear tree stands in a wide field,
Its top is green.
A raven-black horse is grazing under it,
My sweetheart holds him.
A raven-black horse is grazing under it,
My sweetheart holds him.

2. Why, my darling, must he graze today,
From evening to morning?
Wherever you'll go, my dear,
I'll go with you.
Wherever you'll go, my dear,
I'll go with you.

3. And I will go far,
Beyond the seas.
I wish I had never known
This black-eyed maiden.
I wish I had never known
This black-eyed maiden.
