Available translation(s): DUT DUT
Veleť, vtáčku, veleť 
přes te hore, dole,
Veleť, vtáčku, veleť 
přes ten zábrdovské les,

Ach, kýž je mně možná,
ktomu věc podobná smým synečkem,
smým synečkem mluvit dnes!

A mně néní možná,
ani věc podobná,
a mně néní možná,
daleko sme vod sebe!

Ty můžeš mět hinó,
já také hiného,
zapomenem na sebe.

Fliege, Vöglein
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Czech (Čeština) 
Fliege, Vöglein, fliege
über Berg und Täler,
fliege, Vöglein, fliege
über meinen Heimatwald!

Wenn  es möglich wäre,
was ich heiß begehre:
Meinen Liebsten heut zu sehn.

Was mein Herz begehret,
ward mir nicht gewähret.
Ward mir nicht gewähret,
ach, wir sind so weit getrennt!

Mädchen wirst du finden'
Burschen wird' ich finden.
Keiner mehr den andern kennt.
