Má hvězda
Language: Czech (Čeština) 
Available translation(s): ENG GER
Když se večer stmívá, dříve než jdu spát,
Na lávce sedávám vedle našich vrat.
Hledím po nebíčku,
Hledám svou hvězdičku, kde jsi hvězdo ma?

My star
Language: English  after the Czech (Čeština) 
In the early dark, before I went to sleep,
I sat on the bench beside our gateway.
I looked up to the night sky,
I saw all the stars twinkle, which one might be mine?
