Mám já panenku (1920)

Part of a series or song cycle:

The Diary of One who Disappeared, (Zápisník zmizelého)

Mám já panenku

Mám já panenku
ale po, po, po kolenka,
už sa jí zdvihá
režná ko, ko, košulenka.

Now she bears my child

Now she bears my child,
see how bright, bright, bright her eyes are!
As her skirt flies up,
see how white, white, white her thighs are!
