Holubička z dubu
letěla k holubu:
milý nad rybníčky
pase tam koníčky,
a já za ním půjdu.

Holubička krotká
s holoubkem se zobká:
proč bysme taky tak
neměli se zobkat,
když jsme mladí obá.

Douce petite colombe
Language: French (Français)  after the Czech (Čeština) 
Du chêne la petite colombe
S'envola vers son pigeon :
Son bien-aimé par-dessus les étangs
À la pâture mène les chevaux,
Et moi après lui je vais.

La douce petite colombe
Et son petit pigeon se becquettent :
Pourquoi donc nous aussi
Nous ne pourrions nous becqueter,
Quand nous sommes jeunes tous les deux.
