Als die alte Mutter

Als die alte Mutter
Mich noch lehrte singen,
Tränen in den Wimpern
Gar so oft ihr hingen.

Jetzt, wo ich die Kleinen
Selber üb' im Sange,
Rieselt's in den Bart oft,
Rieselt's oft von der braunen Wange!

Songs My Mother Taught Me

Songs my mother taught me,
In the days long vanished;
Seldom from her eyelids
Were the teardrops banished.

Now I teach my children
Each melodious measure.
Oft the tears are flowing,
Oft they flow from my memory's treasure.

Když mne stará matka

Když mne stará matka
zpívat, zpívat ucívala,
podivno, že casto,
casto slzívala.

A ted' také plácem
snedé líce mucim,
když vigánské deti
hrát a zpívat ucim!
