"Dvořak was a Czech composer and he was asked to write music. It was not easy for him to find suitable words. At last he chose three Slovak folk songs and one Czech folk song and composed his new music." -Hana
This song presented here is part of Dvořak's Opus 73"...
Dobrú noc, má milá, dobrú noc,
nech ti je Pánboh sám na pomoc.
Dobrú noc, dobre spi,
nech sa ti snívajú milé sny.
Snívaj sa ti sníčok, ach snívaj,
ked' vstaneš, sníčoku vieru daj,
že ťa ja milujem,
srdečko svoje ti darujem.
Good night, my dear, good night,
May God himself watch over you.
Good night, sleep well,
May you dream sweet dreams!
Dream a little dream, oh dream it,
When you wake up, trust the dream,
That I love you,
That I'm going to give you my heart.
"It is not problem for us in the Czech Republic to sing Slovak words - we know this song and we sing it." -Hana
