Vuře šohaj, vuře

Language: Moravian (Moravština)

Vuře šohaj, vuře v zeleným hóhoře,
Pohání koníčka po hedbávné šňúře.
Ta šňúra hedbávná na pole strhaná,
Nevěr, milá nevěř, šak je láska planá.

Nevěř, milá nevěř, a šak nemáš kemo,
šuhajek falešné pojede na vojno.
Debech měla koňa, sama bech s ňém jela,
aspoň bech viděla, kde bech zahynula.

A zahynuli já, zahyneme vobá,
jenom nás položte do jedneho hroba.
Do jedneho hroba, do jedné trohlice,
bodó vo nás plakat bestrcké děvčice.

Der letzte Wunsch

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Moravian (Moravština)

Pflügte einst ein Bursche bei der grünen Weide, 
Führte seine Pferde an der Schnur von Seide.
Und die seid'ne Schnur ist mitten durch gerissen,
Falsch ist seine Liebe, glaub nicht seinen Küssen.

Glaub nicht seinen Worten, Mädel laß dir raten,
Und dein falscher Bursche muß zu den Soldaten.
Hätte ich ein Rößlein, möcht' ich mit ihm reiten,
Wüßte dann bei Zeiten, wo ich sterben werde, und wo mein Grab sein wird.

Und wenn ich dann sterbe, sterb ich nicht alleine,
In dieselbe Grube legt uns alle beide.
Eine einz'ge Truhe soll uns dann vereinen,
Viele junge Mädchen werden um uns weinen.
