Beli žemi, beli
Moj syn premilený!
Čima budeš chovať,
Ej, na moje starie dni?

-   Budem, manko, budem,
Kým sa neožením;
Akeď sa ožením,
Ej, potom vás oddelím.

-   Búvaj že mi, búvaj,
Len ma neunúvaj!
Čo ma viac unúvaš,
Menej sa nabúvaš.

Belej že sa, belej
Na hori zelenej,
V košielki bielenej.

Košelôčka biela,
Šila ju Mariška,
Šila ju hodbábom
Pod zeleným hájom.

Beli že mi, beli
Moj andelik biely,
Len mi neuletej,
Ej, do tej čiernej zemi!
