Muzikanti, 'Musicians'
Czech source: Anon.

Muzikanti co děláte,
aj, máte husle, a nehráte!

Zahréte mně na cimbále,
at' moja milá veselá je.

Zahréte mně na husličky,
a rozveselte ty dróžičky.

Zahréte mně na tó basu,
a rozveselte všecku chasu.

Zahréte mně všeci spolu,
a vyprovod'te mě až domu.


Leoš Janáček
