Čechomor

Čechomor are a band popular in Slovakia (though actually from the Czech Republic, the cultures of the countries are inextricably linked) mixing traditional and rock musical styles. Here are the lyrics for the song, which tells the story of a girl named Andul’ka who gives birth to nine children but drowns them in the Danube to maintain the appearance of being a virgin (Slovak folk songs are known for their lighthearted nature):

Stala Anduľka pri Dunaji,
stala Anduľka pri Dunaji,
umyvala si biele nohy,
umyvala si biele nohy.
Jak si ich ona umyvala
jak si ich ona umyvala,
peknoho syna porodila,
peknoho syna porodila.
A hybaj synku dole vodou,
a hybaj synku dole vodou,
a ja zostanem čistou pannou,
a ja zostanem čistou pannou.
Jak sa to baba dozvedela,
jak sa to baba dozvedela,
priam richtarovi oznamila,
priam richtarovi oznamila.
A vy richtare,čo robite,
a vy richtare,čo robite,
preč si Anduľku nezlapite,
preč si Anduľku nezlapite,
solo
Hybaj, Anduľko, spoza dveri,
hybaj, Anduľko, spoza dveri,
idu ti otec aj materi,
idu ti otec aj materi.
Veru mi nejdu otec, mati,
veru mi nejdu otec, mati,
ale mi idu dvaja kati,
ale mi idu dvaja kati.
A vy mi kati oči viažte,
a vy mi kati oči viažte,
moju hlavičku mi stinajte,
moju hlavičku mi stinajte.
Bo som si ja to zaslužila,
bo som si ja to zaslužila,
už deviato som zamarnila,
už deviato som zamarnila
