Hájičku zelený, kdo ťa hájit bude?

Language: Moravian (Moravština)

Hájičku zelený, kdo ťa hájit bude?
Myslivca zabili, hajného nebude.
Hájičku zelený, už sem ťa dohájil,
galanečko moja, galanečko moja,
už sem k vám dochodil.

Hájičku zelený, kdo ťa hájit bude?
Galanečko moja, kdo k vám chodit bude?
Ešče sú hájíci, co mia hájívali;
ešče sú pacholci, co k nám chodívali.

Ešče sú hájíci, co mia hájít budú,
ešče sú pacholci, co k nám chodit budú.

Consolation

Language: English after the Moravian (Moravština)

Dark forest green and old! Who will your keeper be?
Slain is your huntsman bold; buried on yonder lea.
Oh, thou sweet woodland lass. Oh, thou dark woodland glen!
All must I leave, alas! All must I leave, alas! never return again!
All must I leave, alas! never, never more come back again.

Oh, ye dark woodlands green! Who will your keeper be?
Oh, thou fair woodland queen! Who'll now come courting thee?
Ah, never fear, my lad, they will look after me!
I'm not afraid or sad, there's many a bonnie lad will come acourting me!

I'm not afraid or sad, I'll ne'er an oldmaid be,
there's many a bonnie lad, glad to come acourting me.


From a Dvořák score (Simroch 1928)
