Kukulienka, kde si bola
(Cuckoo, where have you been)

Slovak

Kukulienka, kde si bola, keď tá tuhá zima bola?
Hajajaj, kukuku, sedela som na buku.

Sedela som na tom dube, kde Janíčko drevo rúbe.
Sedela som na tej lávce, kde Janíčko krpce láce.

Keď som včera prala šaty, stratila som prsteň zlatý.
Hajajaj, kukuku, hľadajme ho tu i tu.

Vrabec kričí spoza kríčka, že je prsteň u Janíčka.
Sova volá spod jedličky, že je prsteň u Aničky.
Cuckoo, where have you been, when the severe winter was?
Hajajaj, kukuku, I was sitting on a beech.

I was sitting on that oak, where Janíčko cuts the wood.
I was sitting on that footbridge, where Janíčko darns peasant's shoes.

When I was washing clothes yesterday, I lost my gold ring.
Hajajaj, kukuku, find it here and here!

A sparrow is shouting from behind the bush, that Janíčko has the ring.
An owl is shouting from under the fir, that Anička has the ring.
