My Love shes but a lassie yet
Language: Scottish (Scots) 
My Love shes but a lassie yet,
My Love she s but a lassie yet;
We'lllet her stand a year or twa,
She'll no be half sae saucy yet
I rue the day I sought her, O;
I rue the day I sought her, O,
Wha gets her needs na say h' s wood,
But he may say he's bought her, O.

Má milá dosud maličká
Language: Czech (Čeština)  after the Scottish (Scots) 
Má milá dosud maličká,
   má milá dosud maličká, —
jen rok neb dva ji nechám být,
   však spraví se jí hlavička.

Já v nešťastný jí řekl den,
   já v nešťastný jí řekl den, —
kdo dostane ji, z lásky ne,
   za bídný groš ji koupí jen.

Sem nejlepšího ze sklepu,
   sem nejlepšího ze sklepu;
ať kde a kdo se potěší,
   mně vždycky volno u čepu.

My pijem jako pohani,
   my pijem jako pohani; —
náš kaplan zlíbal šumařku
   a splet’ si potom kázání.
