Available translation(s): FRE GER ITA
Dobrú noc, má milá, dobrú noc,
nech ti je Pán Boh sám na pomoc.
Dobrú noc, dobre spi,
nech sa ti snívajú milé sny!

Snívaj sa ti sníčok, ach snivaj,
keď vstaneš, sníčoku veru daj,
že ťa ja milujem,
srdiečko svoje ti darujem.

Buona notte
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the Slovak (Slovenčina) 
Buona notte, amore mio, buona notte,
che Dio vegli su di te!
Buona notte, dormi bene,
sogna dolci sogni.
Sogna un dolce sogno,
ma vero al tuo risveglio,
Perché ti amo,
E il mio cuore ti appartiene.
